When I went to the Louise Bourgeois exhibit at the Guggenheim last week, I knew I’d wind up writing a Game Plan column about the experience. Her art is so provocative and she’s still creating at age 96.
The idea really came together after I read New York magazine later that same day on the subway and found this: Viagra helps women on antidepressants reach orgasm. When I later put the brochure about Bourgeois on my desk and then the factoid I’d ripped out of the magazine on top of it, I realized they were related for me.
And so I came up with this: Self-Expression vs. Self-Medicating.
