BRUCE NAUMAN : CONTRAPPOSTO STUDIES

PUNTA DELLA DOGANA - VENISE

Palazzo Grassi – Punta della Dogana presents a major exhibition dedicated to the US artist Bruce Nauman (1941, Indiana, USA), entitled “Bruce Nauman: Contrapposto Studies,” and curated by Carlos Basualdo, the Keith L. and Katherine Sachs Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Caroline Bourgeois, curator at Pinault Collection, in close collaboration with the artist.

The exhibition in Venice is focused on a series of recent video installation that Nauman has developed in the last five years and are related to a single channel video from 1968, “Walk with Contrapposto.” The show includes a comprehensive survey of that series along with a number of earlier performances, installations and videos that provide the overall context for the recent work. From the 1960s to today, Bruce Nauman has constantly experimented with different artistic languages – from photography to performance, sculpture and video – to explore and mine their potentialities in a body of work that relentlessly explores the human condition while interrogating the very definition of what constitutes artistic practice.
