Louise Bourgeois’ famous sculpture of a giant spider, Maman 1999, will crawl out onto the north landscape outside Tate Modern on Wednesday, 3 October. The arrival of Maman, which stands more than nine metres high, heralds one of the few exhibitions ever mounted to span seven decades of work by a single artist.
Louise Bourgeois, featuring over 200 works, will open at Tate Modern on 10 October 2007 and will run until 20 January 2008.
Beginning October 25 2007, The Menil Collection will provide an in-depth look at the formative years of Nauman’s career in A Rose Has No Teeth: Bruce Nauman in the 1960s (the title of the exhibition is drawn from a 1966 work, an embossed plaque quoting Ludwig Wittgenstein, revealing Nauman’s interest in art and language). On View at The Menil Collection October 25, 2007 – January 13, 2008.
