Double Take: Double Sexus
With Sandra Macpherson and Shannon Winnubst
In these hour-long gallery conversations, you'll discuss the current exhibitions with artists, curators, and members of the Ohio State community.
In Double Take gallery talks, experts from two different disciplines or fields share and trade insights about artworks on view in the galleries.
This time, Ohio State faculty members Sandra Macpherson (English) and Shannon Winnubst (Women's Studies) discuss works by Hans Bellmer and Louise Bourgeois in the Double Sexus exhibition. These two fascinating and influential artists are both known for their provocative explorations of the human form.
Hans Bellmer (1902–1975), a German sculptor and photographer, was associated with the French surrealists and fled Germany for Paris when his work was declared "degenerate" by the Nazis. Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010), a French-born American sculptor achieved major recognition late in her long career, attracting intense interest and attention and serving as a major influence on younger artists. She received the Wexner Prize in 1999.
