The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is pleased to present Louise Bourgeois: Structures of Existence: The Cells, an ample selection of the innovative, sophisticated sculptural works developed by Louise Bourgeois (1911 –2010) over the course of two decades. revista-magazine-escaparates-retail-design-exhibition-art-guggenheim-bilbao-louise-bourgeois-vishopmag-001 In this exhibition, organized by Haus der Kunst, Munich, in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, visitors will be able to discover and experience 28 emotionally charged architectural spaces, each an individual microcosm separating the internal from the external world, by one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century.


Louise Bourgeois’s concepts and formal inventions, such as her engagement with psychoanalysis and feminism, and her use of environmental installation and theatrical formats, have since become key positions in contemporary art. A prime example of this is the Cells, a series comprising approximately 60 unique pieces that Louise Bourgeois began in 1986 with Articulated Lair.revista-magazine-escaparates-retail-design-exhibition-art-guggenheim-bilbao-louise-bourgeois-vishopmag-003

This exhibition reunites Cells I to VI for the first time since 1991, when they were first shown at the Carnegie International in Pittsburgh. The term “cell” originated during the preparations for the Carnegie show. For Bourgeois, this word had many connotations, as it refers to the biological cell of a living organism as well as the isolation of a prison or monastic cell.
