Classi Conversations on Contemporary & Modern Art with Lizzie Perrotte
December 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
Session 2 creates a dialogue between the sculpture of two female artists: British Modernist, Barbara Hepworth and French born artist, Louise Bourgeois
Hepworth created highly refined abstract equivalents for her physical experiences of the ancient, wild, and beautiful coastal landscape, environment of Cornwall, England where she lived and worked for much of her life.
By contrast, Bourgeois, used sculpture to explore subjects drawn from myth, literature which became entwined with projections of her own imaginings. In the 90s she used installation to create sculptural environments inviting viewers to confront phobic subjects, such as spiders. Her spider, “Maman”, outside the National Gallery in Ottawa, is a major landmark.
