New Perspectives on Louise Bourgeois: A Conversation with Juliet Mitchell and Siri Hustvedt

In conjunction with the exhibition Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait, join us for a conversation between psychoanalyst Juliet Mitchell, renowned author of Psychoanalysis and Feminism, and Siri Hustvedt, a celebrated novelist and essayist whose most recent work is A Woman Looking at Men Looking at Women. Both Mitchell and Hustvedt have written on Bourgeois and bring new insights to interpreting her work. Topics will include Bourgeois’s intense engagement with psychoanalysis; the way art functioned for her; the connection between her moods, her body, and her imagery; literary dimensions of her provocative writings; and issues relating to feminism. Exhibition curator Deborah Wye, a longtime friend of the artist's and a scholar of her work, moderates.
