Alum Bruce Nauman at the Manetti Shrem Museum
September 27–December 16, 2018
Don’t miss your chance to view the work of Alum Bruce Nauman (MFA 1966) here on campus. Coinciding with the opening of his retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, “Bruce Nauman: Blue and Yellow Corridor” at the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art features the first realization of a participatory environment Nauman conceived in 1970. The work is a narrow passageway that wraps around an existing room, combining colored fluorescent light and closed-circuit video to manipulate the viewer’s perceptual experience. An adjacent gallery includes artworks that situate the corridor within the artist’s career. Guest Curator: Ted Mann.
And just out, the New York Times Magazine has a fascinating article on Nauman. Read the entire article here.
