Louise Bourgeois & Pablo Picasso: Anatomies of Desire

Hauser & Wirth, Zürich

09 Jun 201914 Sep 2019

Bringing together over 90 works including paintings, sculptures and works on paper from important public institutions and private collections such as the Fondation Beyeler (Riehen/Basel), Nasher Sculpture Center (Dallas), Kunstmuseum Den Haag (Hague), and the Museu Picasso (Barcelona), Hauser & Wirth Zurich presents Louise Bourgeois & Pablo Picasso: Anatomies of Desire which is the first time that Picasso is exhibited in a dual dialogue with a female sculptor. Curated by highly renowned specialist Marie-Laure Bernadac, former curator at the Louvre, Picasso Museum, and Centre Pompidou, the exhibition is organised in close collaboration with the Louise Bourgeois Studio.

Aiming to foster a discourse on the work of Bourgeois and Picasso, the exhibition explores the differences and affinities in the artists’ formal, thematic and iconographic language and displays intentional pairings of works.
