Louise Bourgeois: Imaginary Conversations
The National Gallery – May 06 to Aug 06, 2023 Oslo (Norway)
Refusing to be content with a single, fixed expression or to be confined by a single artistic movement, the French-American artist Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010) explored a variety of styles and techniques that few artists can rival. The exhibition “Imaginary Conversations” stages encounters between Bourgeois and other artists. Some of these encounters took place during Bourgeois’s almost century-long life, while others occur across time and space. This is the first major presentation of Bourgeois’s art in Norway in over twenty years.
Works from her entire career are presented, from her paintings and prints from the 1940s to the Cells she created in her final decades. “Imaginary Conversations” also allows you to experience artworks by over fifty other artists, including Edvard Munch, Marie Laurencin, Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giacometti, Arshile Gorky, Louise Nevelson, Senga Nengudi, Alina Szapocznikow, Seni Awa Camara, Nan Goldin, Robert Gober, and Rosemarie Trockel. Many of the works are being shown in Norway for the first time ever.
