Sharmanka Travelling Circus and Louise Bourgeois Prints
Victoria Arts Gallery
Visitors to the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath will be able to see two fantastic exhibitions displayed side-by-side this spring. Sharmanka Travelling Circus is a mechanical theatre that will delight visitors of all ages, while the Hayward Gallery’s touring exhibition Louise Bourgeois Prints will showcase prints by the influential artist, who is perhaps best known for her giant spider sculptures. Both shows will run from 23 February to 7 May 2019.
Sharmanka, from the Russian word for barrel organ, combines sound and movement with striking images to make for a humorous and at times slightly macabre experience.
The Hayward Touring exhibition Louise Bourgeois Prints features two series of prints by one of the most important and influential artists of recent decades, Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010). Best known for her powerful, emotionally charged sculptures, steel cage installations and fabric figures, her prolific output grew increasingly expressive throughout her career.
