Louise Bourgeois: The Eternal Thread is the first large-scale museum exhibition in China of work by Louise Bourgeois. The show offers a focussed survey of major works from the artist’s entire career, including Personage sculptures from the late 1940s, Cell installations from the 1990s, the fabric works of her final decade, and the monumental spider sculpture Maman. The motif of the uncut thread references the prominence of fabric and sewing in the last fifteen years of Bourgeois’s life. The exhibition was previously at the Long Museum, Shanghai.
"Sean Scully: Landline" is on view at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art through May 19. Curated by Stéphane Aquin, the exhibition focuses on Scully's exploration of sublime elemental relationships through a variety of media.
“I think of land, sea, sky. And they always make a massive connection. I try to paint this, this sense of the elemental coming together of land and sea, sky and land…stacked in horizon lines endlessly beginning and ending…” – Sean Scully
The exhibition originated at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

A site-specific commission by London-based artist Paul Morrison was recently unveiled at the Norton Museum of Art. The 24-carat gold leaf and acrylic wall drawing is the largest that the artist has created to date and positions the viewer within a fantastical landscape. Morrison's compositions are the result of an intensive and detailed process which rethinks spatial and historical juxtapositions. He manipulates his selected source imagery, removing color and editing detail; separate images are then collaged to create an original composition.
