Tuesday Evenings at the Modern: Bruce Nauman
November 13, 2012
3200 Darnell St. , Fort Worth, TX
Bruce Nauman is one of the most influential artists working in the world today. The quintessential multi-media artist, Nauman has been a pioneer of performance and body art, conceptual photography, the use of language and sound as mediums, as well as video and site-specific installations. The Museum has recently acquired a new room-sized installation by the artist, Studio Mix, 2010. The work is inspired by a set of piano exercises that the composer Béla Bartók (1881–1945) wrote as a means of teaching children the piano. Nauman’s piece consists of video, Nauman’s voice, and the artist Terry Allen practicing the Bartók exercises to Nauman’s instructions. The artist will talk about the development of his art from its early beginnings to the present with the Museum’s Chief Curator, Michael Auping.
