Hey, just to let you know, the Maman's are no longer in London, Paris, Boston or D.C. Trust me.

CuriousJM October 26, 2009 3:46 p.m.  

Thank you Molly for the info. Maman has always been quite mobile so it possible that she may have been temporarily loaned to some other museum/location.

Any way thanks once again for the info.

All the best.

Gary February 07, 2010 8:55 p.m.  

we were at the Hermitage in 2004. Was the Spider there then? I don't remember seeing it.

CuriousJM February 07, 2010 10:30 p.m.  

Hi Gary

Maman was exhibited at the Hermitage Museum around Nov. 2001. See their Official webpage.

As I wrote in my earlier comment, Maman has always been quite mobile so it may be possible that in 2004 she was away from Hermitage. Best would be to check with with the Museum via their feed back link.

More Louise Bourgeois:

Carrie May 12, 2011 7:31 p.m.  

@Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Patricia Kowalski June 09, 2013 6:58 p.m.  

There is a maman in Toronto Canada as well. At the Distillery District

CuriousJM June 09, 2013 7:23 p.m.  

Thank you Patricia. After reading your comments I did Google search but couldn't find any reference to Maman Spider in Toronto. However there is a giant spider sculpture but it is of different design and perhaps by a different artist.

Please have a look at this link.

If this is not the spider you are referring to and a real Maman by Louise Bourgeois does exist in Toronto then please send me some link/reference to it. Thanks
