This summer, let iconic artist Louise Bourgeois lead you to the cinema with a series of free films at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.

Featuring a selection of Louise Bourgeois’s favourite films, this series spotlights the artist’s little-known interest in cinema, drawing together Hollywood melodrama, black comedies and midnight movies by the likes of John Waters and David Lynch.

The series begins, appropriately, with The Wizard of Oz (1939) – a parable of cinemagoing – and ends with Pink flamingos (1972). In between, the series spans hothouse drama (Cat on a hot tin roof _1958, _Splendor in the grass 1961), off-kilter rom-coms (Harold and Maude 1971) and clinical thrillers by Robert Altman (_That cold day in the park _1969) and Claude Chabrol (_Story of women _1988).

This free film series is screened in association with the exhibition Louise Bourgeois: Has the Day Invaded the Night or Has the Night Invaded the Day?, which is on display at the Art Gallery of New South Wales from 25 November 2023 to 28 April 2024.

Wednesdays and Sundays, 29 November 2023 – 10 March 2024, various times

Free, bookings recommended.
