Nice brief trip to the Burton Gallery, Bideford

Meet up with Liz’s brother and to look at the sculpture exhibition by Louise Bourgeois.

French-American artist Louise Bourgeois is widely recognised as one of the most important and influential figures of modern and contemporary art, with a career spanning eight decades from the 1930s to 2010.

ARTIST ROOMS Exhibition: Louise Bourgeois - brings together works which she made during the last twenty years of her life, a period of extraordinary creativity.
Bourgeois’s art was often autobiographical, exploring themes such as childhood, family, motherhood, identity and gender. She reworked her ideas in different forms and materials, creating large-scale sculpture and installation, painting, printmaking, drawing and textiles. Both biographical and universal, Bourgeois’s work reaches us with a powerful immediacy more than a decade after her death.
