The Harris Museum & Art Gallery presents an exhibition of works by Bruce Nauman, one of the most influential artists of our time. The show includes his epic work, Changing Light Corridor with Rooms, last exhibited in the UK in 1989. Representing the breadth of his practice from the 1970s to the 1990s, the exhibition features works that focus on body language, word play and repetitive gesture.
Young people have been involved in selecting the works and will create additional interpretation in the gallery.
There will be an programme of talks, tours and workshops to explore Bruce Nauman’s work in more depth.
Like many artists of his generation, Bruce Nauman has created art across a broad range of media, from sculpture and photography to printmaking and performance. Nauman began his university studies in mathematics and physics before switching disciplines to pursue a career in art.
Starting as a painter, Nauman experimented with sculpture and film before switching his focus to performance art in the late 60s. This Artist Rooms exhibitions brings together works from across his career, from his early neon word pieces to his later light installations.
