Further to the ICRA December 2023 Annual Conference ‘On Paper’ and the presentation by Sewon Kang, archivist and cataloguer of Louise Bourgeois: The Complete Prints & Books, ICRA would like to invite members to join Sharon Hecker and Matthew Stephenson on a visit to the Easton Foundation and townhouse of Louise Bourgeois on 3rd May at 10.30am at 349 West 20th Street, New York.

Sewon will lead the visit, which usually lasts an hour. Due to the intimate nature of Bourgeois’s house, places are limited to ten places and offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Easton Foundation was established by Louise Bourgeois in the 1980s as a non-profit and charitable organization. Upon her death in 2010, at the age of 98, Bourgeois bequeathed her home and an adjacent townhouse to become the Foundation’s center.

For select visitors, the Foundation is pleased to present a comprehensive survey of photographs, exhibition announcements, and personal writings from Bourgeois’s life and career. These documents hint at the breadth and scope of the Louise Bourgeois Archive, and provide unique insight to the artist’s creative process. A selection of Bourgeois’s artworks from the Foundation’s extensive collection will also be on display, and the backyard sculpture garden will be open, weather permitting. In addition, Louise Bourgeois’s home, where many works were conceived or made, will be accessible by guided tour.

ICRA is a not-for-profit members’ association that brings together those involved in the creation, writing, editing, designing and production of catalogues raisonnés.

We facilitate collaboration between projects, the exchange of information about the technical and practical aspects of making a catalogue raisonné, the mentoring of the next generation of scholars, and the support of artists, their estates, collectors and the market on the challenges and responsibilities of creating catalogues raisonnés.

ICRA hosts events throughout the year for the benefit of its members including an annual conference.

For details of upcoming and past events please visit our Events page.

Many of the sessions from our annual conference were filmed and are available on our Youtube channel.
