Perth Museum & Art Gallery

Running from September 1 – November 18
Often autobiographical and intensely psychological, the influential French – American artist’s work covers themes such as birth, death, love, loss and fear. Although her career spanned seven decades, Bourgeois was most prolific in later life, when she created the famous spider sculptures which made her one of the most recognisable artists today.
This free exhibition is drawn from the ARTIST ROOMS collection and follows the major display of works by the French-American artist at the new Tate Modern gallery.
This exhibition draws from the ARTIST ROOMS collection of over 1,600 works of modern and contemporary art, displayed across the UK in solo exhibitions that showcase the work of more than 40 major artists. The touring programme gives young people the chance to get involved in creative projects, discover more about art and learn new skills. Since 2009, 40 million people have visited more than 150 displays at over 75 museums and galleries.
ARTIST ROOMS was founded through The d’Offay Donation in 2008, when Anthony d’Offay gifted the collection to the National Galleries of Scotland and Tate, with the assistance of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, Art Fund, and the Scottish and British Governments.
