Bruce Nauman: Language Body

Dorothy Lemelson Innovation Studio

Jul 18 - Aug 06 // 2016

Bruce Nauman: Language Body // Part of The Jordan D. Schnitzer Exhibition and Visiting Artist Lecture Series and co-presented with Converge 45 and the PNCA Print Media Department.

Language Body mines the collection of the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation and presents fifteen works that showcases two elemental components found in the oeuvre of Bruce Nauman, anatomy and text. Beginning in the late 1960’s Nauman has forged a sensibility in his work where he puns upon the unstable nature of language and flesh, colliding these materials into a swirl of humor and insight.
