Tate and the National Galleries of Scotland (NGS) have announced its jointly owned Artist Rooms collection, which so far has toured 76 museums and galleries in the UK, will be given a dedicated gallery in the new Tate Modern. Opening on 17 June, the first artist to be shown in the permanent Artist Rooms gallery will be Louise Bourgeois.
As the French-American artist’s Turbine Hall commission for The Unilever Series, which included the monumental spider Maman, coincided with Tate Modern’s opening in 2000, it is fitting that a selection of her work will be exhibited for the first show in the new Artist Rooms gallery. It will be on display for a year.
Artist Rooms Louise Bourgeois at Tate Modern will open on 17 June.
