The Life and Art of Louise Nevelson and Louise Bourgeois with Christian Conrad

This lecture will continue our examination of contemporary artists with a focus on two women who are instrumental to modern art. Louise Nevelson first began showing her work in the 1940s with a focus on figurative abstraction. As her career continued, she began creating large scale non-objective forms constructed from scrap material. Louise Bourgeois began creating surrealist sculptures in her native France before moving to the United States. After moving to America, she worked closely with the Abstract Expressionists in New York,creating forms that varied considerably in style. Join as we examine the work of two of the pioneering women in contemporary art. 

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

This event is free to the public.

Join us for coffee and donuts!
