Bourgeois Society is the social formation in which the commodity relation – the relation of buying and selling – has spread into every corner of life.
The producing class in bourgeois society is the proletariat, a class of people who have nothing to sell but their capacity to work; since all the means of production belong to the bourgeoisie, workers have no choice but to offer their labour-power for sale to the bourgeoisie.
Those who own only their own ability to labor, the proletariat, are free to sell themselves to any bourgeois who will buy their labor power, for the benefit of maintaining their own survival, and giving greater strength and power to the bourgeoisie.

But the reasons for Bourgeois' significance given by the show's curator and selected catalogue essayists were often at odds with the evidence of the art--what we saw and what we were told to see in Bourgeois' art didn't match up.
The formal variety of Bourgeois' work is sufficient to suggest it was made by more than one artist, yet the persistence of certain motifs, and an overarching mood pitched between longing and dread, reinforces the impression of a signature style.
I would even suggest that Bourgeois is influential among installation- and "body"-oriented artists today precisely because she so forcefully transmits the legacy of Surrealism, which is, perhaps surprisingly, the most potent of historical avant-gardes among the current generation of artists.

As Bourgeois noted later of her knife-shaped female torso, Femme Couteau (1969-70; collection of Jerry and Emily Spiegel, New York), "it symbolizes women who are afraid of men--so they imitate men.
