A truly Transatlantique figure, Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010), born in Paris, spends most of her life in New York City where she moves in 1938, eventually taking American citizenship. A sculptor and plastician of considerable talent with a polymorphous practice, she is recognised and celebrated far earlier in the United States than in France. Marie-Laure Bernadac, a leading expert in Bourgeois's work, invites nine artists from both sides of the Atlantic to share their views of this major artistic figure of the 20th century. Their contributions prove the extent to which Louise Bourgeois continues to fascinate even the younger generations of artists.
