The Accident by Louise Bourgeois

March 21, 2011


The Accident by Louise Bourgeois, 1999, Drypoint on Paper

Off The Beaten Path: Violence, Women and Art is on display at the Chicago Cultural Center through April 13, 2011.  This etching by Louise Bourgeois was included in the exhibition.  The wall placard indicates that a lone female figure is in a black tunnel skewered by a crutch, hobbled by high heels, nude, armless yet smiling complacently, wearing a mask that tells the world everything is fine.
