Louise Bourgeois | HOW TO SEE the artist with Sewon Kang

To understand and cope with complex emotions like jealousy, anger, and anxiety, the celebrated sculptor Louise Bourgeois turned to art, calling it her tool of “survival." MoMA curatorial assistant Sewon Kang tours a number of Bourgeois' printed works, which, despite being a lesser-known aspect of her work, uniquely reveal the artists' creative processes and intentions. "Louise Bourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait" is on view now through January 2018. The exhibition is organized by Deborah Wye, Chief Curator Emerita, Prints and Illustrated Books, with Sewon Kang, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Drawings and Prints.
