9780500093849: Intimate Geometries: The Art and Life of Louise Bourgeois

Louise Bourgeois was a prolific artist known for her highly personal body of work consisting of sculptures, installations, drawing and prints that deal with themes of memory, trauma, fear and hidden emotion. Bourgeois first received international acclaim in the 1990s, when the artist was in her eighties, for her ambitious series of Cells: small room-like sculptures containing arrangements of symbolic objects intended to elicit emotional and psychological responses in the viewer. Here, for the first time, her vast oeuvre is interwoven with a fascinating discussion of the full range of ideas, emotions and experiences that inspired the creation of her work. Renowned critic and curator Robert Storr, acknowledged as Bourgeois' leading interpreter, presents a chronological account of the artist's career, weaving in thematic discussions accompanied by sequential 'portfolios' of the artist's work. An introduction outlining the artist's career is followed by chapters examining her childhood; Bourgeois' education, early career and emigration to the US; her mid-career 'disappearance' and her gradual return to prominence during the 1980s; and her late career as high-profile celebrity artist, exhibiting across the world until her death in 2011. The final chapter examines Bourgeois' profound and ongoing artistic legacy.

About the Author:

Robert Storr is a painter, critic, museum man, and exhibition-maker. From 1990 until 2002 he worked at the Museum of Modern Art in New York where he was curator and then senior curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture. His group exhibitions there included DISLOCATIONS, a survey of installation art, and Modern Art Despite Modernism, in addition to which he organized retrospectives of Robert Ryman, Tony Smith, Chuck Close, Elizabeth Murray, Gerhard Richter, and Max Beckmann. From 1990 until 2000 he directed MoMA’s Projects program, for which he assembled small monographic shows by Art Spiegelman (the first exhibition devoted to a “comix” artist in MoMA’s history), Franz West, Ann Hamilton, and others. In 2002 he was named the first Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and from 2006 to 2016 he served as Dean of the Yale University School of Art, where he is also a professor of painting. Since 1982 his essays, reviews, and columns have appeared in Art in America, Artpress, Frieze, Artforum, Corriere della Sera, and numerous other magazines and journals. In addition to catalogues written for shows he has organized in Japan, Spain, and the United States, he has contributed to exhibition publications for all the major museums in New York and for many other museums around the world. From 2003 to 2007 he served as Director of the Venice Biennale, the first American to hold that position. He is the recipient of five honorary doctorates and awards from organizations including the International Association of Art Critics and the Archives of American Art. In 2000 he was made Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture and was later promoted to Officier of the same order. He lives and works in New Haven, Connecticut, and Brooklyn, New York.

Review:

"More than a thousand illustrations and writings from Bourgeois's close personal friend, art critic Robert Storr, illuminate the late work and life of the artist."
Publishers Weekly

"Intimate Geometries is dedicated to the great artist Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) who died a few years ago at the age of 98. In my opinion, Bourgeois would be a great choice to win the Nobel Prize in Art."  
Edward Goldman, KCRW San Francisco

"Storr — a former curator at the Museum of Modern Art and among the best art writers alive — devotes an exhaustive essay in support of Bourgeois’ equally expansive intellect and intuition. What makes it even more important is that the artist was one of the great pioneers in the field among women in the 20th century, and remains a vital feminist icon even since her death, at 98, in 2010."
San Francisco Chronicle

"A grande dame of modernist art, Bourgeois contributed to movements from Surrealism to Post-Minimalism, though her brooding and sexually explicit sculptures defy easy categorization. Art critic Robert Storr, a close friend of the artist, brings extensive critical analysis to bear in this heavily illustrated biography."
Art in America
