Co-published by Hudson Hills Press

The first monograph on the artist, published in conjunction with the CAC 25-year retrospective exhibition. Bourgeois is a figurative artist whose meticulously detailed paintings and sculptural assemblages present icons of popular culture as well as everyday people. His work often portrays religious imagery and environmental concerns and the social issues expressed in the rock and roll and movies he loves. The artist fuses private fantasy with a kind of political document, exploring everything from racial tensions to violence, both domestic and public.
