About Bruce Nauman

Using an array of media including video installation, performance, sculpture, and photography, Bruce Nauman is known for conceptual works that explore space, language, and the body. Nauman infuses his pieces with irony and humor, creating verbal and visual puns to often-unsettling effect, challenging viewers and making them aware of their own physicality. Nauman’s neon works explore the semantic and metaphorical possibilities that arise from subtly rearranging a few letters, such as in Run from Fear, Fun from Rear (1972).

American, b. 1941, Fort Wayne, Indiana, based in New Mexico
