A Fall Day At MoMA: Exploring Louise Bourgeois

Visiting New York and can’t decide what to do? We have just the answer. Nothing puts us in the mood for a day of contemporary art like cool NYC temperatures. Head to the famed cultural institution, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) to see the newly opened Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait. Famous for her impressive colossal spider sculptures, the show goes beyond the metal and marble arachnids and explores the artist’s creative process and reasons for their creation. The result is a mind-expanding exhibition that both celebrates and highlights the artist’s life, which ended in 2010, just two years before her centennial. Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) was a French-American artist that explored cultural themes such as family, domesticity, the body, femininity and more. Her work questions the world around us and the roles we play. Tap into the sophistication and academic nature of New York by visiting anytime between now and January 28, 2018.
