Bruce Nauman Summary


Bruce Nauman by Robert C. Morgan

One of America's most important artists, Bruce Nauman has worked in a variety of media since the mid-1960s: sculpture, photography, performance, installation, sound, holography, film, and video. What has been a constant throughout his career, however, is his persistence in exploring both art as an investigation of the self and the power of language to define that self. This volume in the "Art + Performance" series is the combines key critical writings on Nauman with the artist's own writings and interviews with him, as well as images of his work. Bruce Nauman offers a multi-faceted portrait of an artist whose determination to experiment with style and form has created a body of work as eclectic and perhaps more influential than that of any other living American artist.

Bruce Nauman Reviews


"Providing a varied and extensive collection of texts by and about Nauman's work, this anthology opens many doors into reading the layers upon layers of this artist's ironic tragi-comedies... With its focus on Nauman from so many perspectives and its concentration on his performance and new media aspects, this book provides meaningful and extensive resources for both admirers and scholars... In the end, it sets a bountiful theoretical, historical, aesthetic, ethical, and critical context for responding to Nauman's productions." -- Brian Bergen-Aurand, Rain Taxi
