ARTIST ROOMS: Bruce Nauman

Bruce Nauman, VIOLINS, VIOLENCE, SILENCE 1981-2

Exhibition
15 February - 24 May 2014

The Harris Museum & Art Gallery is delighted to present 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.
