Bourgeois, not bourgeois

NEW ORLEANS: “Louise Bourgeois: Paintings” is the first comprehensive exhibition of paintings produced by the iconic, French American artist.

While Bourgeois is best known today as a sculptor, it is in this early body of work—created in the decade spanning World War II—that her artistic voice emerged.

In her two-dimensional works she established a core group of visual motifs that she would continue to explore and develop over the course of her decades-long career.

Organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (where the works are on view through Aug. 7, 2022) the exhibition’s second and final venue will be New Orleans Museum of Art, Sep. 9, 2022–Jan. 1, 2023.

We hope the NOLA museum will offer some after-6 p.m. showings. Otherwise, it would be bourgeois.
