2012 Louise Bourgeois: Deslaçar um tormento 

The largest in Portugal since the artist’s death, this exhibition of works by Louise Bourgeois (Paris, 1911–2010, New York) spans seven decades of her oeuvre, from the late 1940s to 2010.

Visited and revisited over the last decades in countless intense exhibitions presented in museum spaces across the world, Louise Bourgeois’ extensive and singular body of work is pervaded by themes indelibly associated with traumatic childhood experiences and events – the family, sexuality, the body, death and the unconscious – which she confronted and exorcised through her art.

This exhibition is organised by the Serralves Foundation — Museum of Contemporary Art and Glenstone Museum, Potomac, Maryland, USA, in collaboration with The Easton Foundation, New York, and co-produced with the Voorlinden Museum & Gardens, Wassenaar, The Netherlands.

To Unravel a Torment is curated by Emily Wei Rales, Director and co-founder of Glenstone Museum.

At Serralves the exhibition was organised by Philippe Vergne, Director of the Museum, with Paula Fernandes, Curator.

This exhibition has received the generous support of Hauser & Wirth Gallery.
