Louise Bourgeois: Has the Day Invaded the Night or Has the Night Invaded the Day? is the must-see exhibition this summer at the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW).

The display of the iconic French-American artist’s work is the largest and most comprehensive ever to be presented in Australia and includes an impressive 120 works spanning Bourgeois’ seven-decade career. Head Curator for International Art at the Gallery, Justin Paton, says that, during this period, Bourgeois became a ‘grandmother and hero to artists who were much younger, but who revered her for her work’.  

Bourgeois (1911–2010) spent her youth in a village outside Paris helping with her parents’ successful tapestry restoration business. She studied mathematics at the Sorbonne, but when her mother died in the early 1930s, she abandoned the course and turned to art.

A new solo exhibition by artist Maria Kapajeva entitled “Hear My Scream, Listen To Their Dreams” opened at Tallinn’s Draakoni Gallery on Wednesday. The content of the exhibition is strongly influenced by the gallery’s location directly opposite the Russian Embassy.

According to a press release, Kapajeva’s aim with the exhibition is to foster a more nuanced dialogue regarding the ongoing war in Ukraine, which has led to the continual exposure of harrowing imagery.

Consequently, a process of desensitization has transpired, rendering people less able to empathize with the enduring violence faced by real individuals still fighting for their lives in Ukraine. The intricate details, nuances, and personal narratives have been reduced to easily shareable content that briefly crosses our screens before fading into obscurity.
