“Louise Bourgeois: Spiral”

“Louise Bourgeois: Spiral”
Cheim & Read is pleased to present Louise Bourgeois: Spiral, the gallery’s ninth solo exhibition devoted to the artist’s work. The show will explore the range of Bourgeois’ spiral motifs as expressed in sculpture, painting, and drawing, from the early 1950s through 2010, the year of her death. It also will include a series of spiral word drawings made on blue paper in 1986. The exhibition, the final offering in the gallery’s current Chelsea location, will open on November 8, 2018, and run through December 22.
In materials as diverse as wood, steel, bronze, latex, marble, plaster, resin, hemp, lead, ink, pencil, crayon, woodcut, watercolor, and gouache, Bourgeois investigates every imaginable manifestation of the spiral, from graphic patterns to graphite whorls, wobbly orbits to chiseled vortices, twisted columns to coiling snakes, staircases, and pyramids. The cursive blue-paper word drawings, in English and French, complement the purely visual works by conveying the spirit of Bourgeois’ poetry in extraordinary pictorial forms.
