About The Easton Foundation:
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. The Foundation has on view a comprehensive survey of photographs, exhibition announcements, and personal writings from Louise 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 and studio, where many works were conceived or made, will be accessible by guided tour.
