Louise Bourgeois Spiders

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

Ranging from the intimate to the monumental, Louise Bourgeois's fierce and fragile spiders reference industriousness and protectiveness--qualities the artist associated with her mother.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Louise Bourgeois Spiders :

Bourgeois' popular sculptural spiders command SFMOMA's 5th floor sculpture gallery. They're equal parts wondrous and intimidating (would you want to encounter a spider of this size? I think not). The late artist first began creating these works when she was in her 80s and remarked that at times, the spiders referenced her mother with their "cleverness, industriousness, and protectiveness."
