There are great places to see Louise Bourgeois’ work; The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Tate Modern in London, and… the Pendleton Center for the Arts in Pendleton, Oregon!

We are proud to present work by one of the most important artists of the 20th Century in the East Oregonian Gallery here at PCA. Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) was a French-American artist whose work explores themes of childhood, domesticity, family, gender roles and sexuality. While her room-sized spider sculptures are probably the most recognizable works of her long career, she was an accomplished printmaker whose works on paper were created over a span of 70 years. The images selected from the collection of
Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation provide an important overview of her work. Thanks to Schnitzer's generous support, admission to this exhibit is free for all ages.


Check out some great videos about her work at the Musuum of Modern Arts' website, and don’t miss the documentary about Louise streaming on Amazon Prime right now, Louise Bourgeois: The Spider, the Mistress, and the Tangerine.
