Lousie Bourgeois: Stitches in Time
February 12 – March 27, 2005
Considered one of the most revered artists of our time, Louise Bourgeois’s career has spanned the better part of the last century. The exhibition includes an extraordinary group of life-size busts in sewn fabric, cell-like vitrines housing surrealistic scenes, and totemic figures, reinterpreting in fabric, Bourgeois’s wood and bronze sculptures of the 1940s and 1950s. Over 20 pieces, most created in the last four years, are accompanied by a selection of the artist’s graphic work.
Louise Bourgeois: Stitches in Time is organized by the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin. It is curated by Frances Morris, senior curator, Tate Modern, and is co-curated with Brenda McParland, head of exhibitions at the Irish Museum of Modern Art. MOCA, North Miami is the only U.S. venue for the exhibition.
The presentation of Louise Bourgeois: Stitches in Time at MOCA, is sponsored by Northern Trust, Gillette, Monica and Jorge Tchinnosian, Nancy and Michael Gifford, Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz, the Lewis E. Nerman Philanthropic Fund of Greater Kansas City, and the Samuel I. Adler Family Foundation.
