Giant Spider Returns To The Tate Modern

Artist Louise Bourgeois’s giant spider has made a return to the Tate Modern Museum in London.

The exhibition, which begins on 10th October 2007, reveals the 30-foot-high bronze sculptural spider, entitled Maman. Visitors will be able to walk in and around the spider’s legs, to observe the white marble eggs it carries in its pouch, before entering the museum.

Bourgeois’s giant female spider first made an appearance at the opening of Tate Modern in London in 1999.

The Tate Modern, which is Britain's national museum of international modern art, will also showcase other work as part of Bourgeois’s exhibition that includes over 200 paintings, printmaking, and sculptures she has created in her career.

The exhibition end on 20th January 2008. To find out more information visit www.tate.org.uk/modern.
