Curator Talk with Lucy Askew
Lucy Askew, Senior Curator at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (SNGMA), Edinburgh, and curator of the exhibition ARTIST ROOMS: Louise Bourgeois, A Woman Without Secrets held at SNGMA in 2013-14, will talk about the rich and varied work of Louise Bourgeois, exploring key themes found in Bourgeois’ practice across the artist’s extensive career.
ARTIST ROOMS: Louise Bourgeois draws from the ARTIST ROOMS collection of over 1,600 works of modern and contemporary art, displayed across the UK in solo exhibitions that showcase the work of more than 40 major artists. The touring programme gives young people the chance to get involved in creative projects, discover more about art and learn new skills. Since 2009, 40 million people have visited more than 150 displays at over 75 museums and galleries.
The ARTIST ROOMS touring programme is delivered by the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate in a partnership with Ferens Art Gallery until 2019, supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, by Art Fund and by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland.
The ARTIST ROOMS collection is owned and managed by the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate, and was established through The d’Offay Donation in 2008 with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, Art Fund, and the Scottish and British Governments.
