The Parrish Art Museum is hosting a viewing of Louise Bourgeois: The Spider, the Mistress and the Tangerine (2008, 99 minutes) on Friday, January 17. Presented as part of The Artist's Lens, a documentary series co-presented with Hamptons Doc Fest, the screening will begin at 6 p.m.

Directed by Marion Cajori and Amei Wallach, the documentary explores the life and artistic process of abstract sculptor Louise Bourgeois.

"I'm delighted to continue our partnership with Hamptons Doc Fest and to kick off the season, which focuses on women artists, with Louise Bourgeois who was hugely influential and galvanized so many women artists who came after her," said Corinne Erni, Parrish Senior Curator of ArtsReach and Special Projects.

Louise Bourgeois: The Spider, the Mistress and the Tangerine was filmed between 1993 and 2007. The filmmakers had full access to the artist's process. Best known for her large-scale sculpture and installation art, Bourgeois' pieces delve into a variety of themes. In 1982, she was the first woman to be celebrated with a major retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. A few years later, in 1989, she was honored with another retrospective at Documenta 9 in Kassel, Germany. Her masterpieces can be found in the collections of museums worldwide.

"This complex, utterly fascinating docu evolves in almost as varied and unpredictable ways as has its 96-year-old subject, famed sculptress Louise Bourgeois. Pic reps a collaboration among three women: Bourgeois herself (assuming an active role in the cinematic reassemblage of her life, as she does in her fabric, stone or wood constructions), art historian Amei Wallach (in her first directorial stint) and the late, brilliant art documentarian Marion Cajori (in her last)," Ronnie Scheib said in a review of the film for Variety.

Wallach will take part in a conversation with Parrish Art Museum director Terrie Sultan following the film.

Admission to the screening is $15, $5 members, and students.

Parrish Art Museum is located at 279 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For more information, call 631-238-2118 or parrishart.org.
