Now, Now, Louison

‘This is the portrait, from memory, of a woman who devoted her life to her art, a life that was also the life of the century.’

Jean Frémon will discuss Now, Now, Louison, an interior monologue describing Louise Bourgeois’s life and work, with poet and translator Cole Swensen. Progressing by image and word associations, Frémon gives the reader a sense of fascinating and moving proximity to his world-renowned friend, artist Louise Bourgeois. His prose evokes Bourgeois’s history and inner life with precision, as only one artist regarding another can: her relationships with her family, with her adoptive country, with other artists and her assistant. The voice of the grande dame of the art world, famous for her insolence and humour, comes to vibrant life again.

In English. Free and open to the public. No RSVP necessary.
