Curator Frances Morris on meeting Louise Bourgeois

About

Louise Bourgeois is one of the world’s most respected sculptors. Over a long career she has worked through most of the twentieth century’s avant-garde artistic movements from abstraction to realism, yet has remained uniquely individual and powerfully inventive.  Curator Frances Morris presents an overview of this retrospective and introduces archive footage showing Bourgeois at home in New York as she discusses plans for the giant spider and towers that were the very first Turbine Hall commission for Tate Modern in 2000.
