Artists in this exhibition: Eddo Stern, Louise Bourgeois


Eddo Stern
Preview • Thu 22 Oct • 7-9.30pm
Exhibition • Fri 23 Oct — Sun 29 Nov


Eddo Stern is an internationally renowned American/Israeli artist at the forefront of the experimental arts scene. This is the first UK solo exhibition of his work, featuring a range of his acclaimed kinetic shadow puppets and 3D computer animations: a mash-up of documentary material from online forums, clip art, YouTube videos, midi music, electronics and hand made puppets. On the one hand, Eddo’s works explore the untenable perversity of a life spent slaying an endless stream of virtual monsters; on the other, an ultimate mirroring of the most familiar social dynamics: the struggle with masculinity, honour, aggression, faith, love and self worth.




ASSEMBLY: ART IN THE BAR
LOUISE BOURGEOIS


Exhibition: Tuesday 20 October – Sunday 29 November 2009
Open: Monday – Sunday 9am-11pm

Louise Bourgeois has maintained her daily practices of making, drawing and writing through a career that has spanned a remarkable seven decades. She has been an active figure throughout the majority of twentieth century art movements, yet has remained uniquely individual, powerfully inventive and often at the forefront of contemporary visual art.

Chapter is hugely excited to announce that Bourgeois will launch the new programme of Art in the Bar with a specially produced work. Utilising the hand drawn – Bourgeois’ preferred working method – the new work is both humorous and thought provoking.

Biography
Louise Bourgeois was born in Paris in 1911 and brought up in Choisy-le-Roi, where her parents restored Aubusson tapestries. From the age of 12, it was Bourgeois’ job to draw the missing parts of the tapestries onto canvas for the weavers.

Later, she studied art under Fernand Leger among others, before moving to New York with her husband, Robert Goldwater, where she held her first solo exhibition of paintings in 1945.

In the 1950s and 60s, discovering new materials, she participated in many group exhibitions, culminating in the 1966 exhibition ‘Eccentric Abstraction’ curated by Lucy Lippard. In 1982, aged 71, she had her first major retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art in New York – the first ever retrospective given to a woman by that museum. Since then, she has been awarded many honours for achievement in the visual arts and has exhibited internationally at galleries all over the world. Including a major retrospective at Tate Modern in 2007.
