Guided tour: Louise Bourgeois - Turning Inwards

Join us for a tour of ‘Louise Bourgeois. Turning Inwards’ led by Hauser & Wirth Somerset Director, Dea Vanagan. The walking tour will lead guests through the galleries whilst discussing significant works in the exhibition.

The exhibition ‘Turning Inwards’ comprises a series of 38 soft-ground etchings Bourgeois made between 2006 and 2010, shown together for the first time. These etchings, extraordinarily large in scale, capture the strength and intimacy of the artist’s hand as she drew directly on the copper plates. Both figurative and abstract, these compositions form a collection of highly personal memories and ideas, interweaving the artist’s reflections on femininity, sexuality, botany, family and infancy. Placed in dialogue with a selection of sculptures by Bourgeois from 1970 to 2005, this innovative sequence sheds new light on the late practice of one of the most influential artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.

This event is free, however booking is essential.
