Louise Bourgeois Book Lab

About

For its inaugural presentation in Los Angeles, the Hauser & Wirth Book & Printed Matter Lab presents a display of documents from The Easton Foundation related to Louise Bourgeois’s early work, her own reading and interest in print making. This display unfolds in three chapters that each reveals the importance of print and illustration in Bourgeois’s life and early career, and explore how these things influenced her sculptural works on display in ‘Revolution in the Making: Abstract Sculpture by Women, 1947 – 2016.’ The Book Lab also offers a unique look at documents exemplifying Bourgeois’s written considerations of creativity and her identity as a woman.
