Bruce Nauman

15 May - 18 August

$60 – $120


Tai Kwun Contemporary is proud to present a major survey exhibition by the US-born artist Bruce Nauman, one of the most influential artists working today. Curated in collaboration with the Bruce Nauman Studio, and based primarily on works from the Pinault Collection and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, as well as loans from the Tate Modern, the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Dia Art Foundation, and the Sonnabend Foundation, Tai Kwun Contemporary’s exhibition takes the form of a survey covering aspects of the artist’s entire career, and is the first show of its kind to be presented in Asia.

With elements drawn from Bruce Nauman: Contrapposto Studies, first shown at the Punta Della Dogana, Venice, in 2021, Tai Kwun Contemporary’s exhibition revisits fundamental elements ever-present in the artist’s portfolio, from early neons to the recent Contrapposto series, alongside drawings and large-scale sculptural and sound installations produced throughout the artist’s six-decade-long practice. Curated by Carlos Basualdo, Marion Boulton “Kippy” Stroud Deputy Director and Chief Curator at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Caroline Bourgeois, Chief Curator at the Pinault Collection, and Pi Li, Head of Art at Tai Kwun, the exhibition will be on view from 15 May to 18 August 2024.

From the 1960s to the present day, Bruce Nauman (b. Fort Wayne, Indiana, in 1941) has constantly been experimenting with various artistic languages — from photography to performance, sculpture to video — probing their potentialities and producing a body of work that questions the very definition of what constitutes artistic practice. Part of Tai Kwun Contemporary’s series of major summer exhibitions spotlighting pioneering artists of our time, the upcoming exhibition highlights the exploratory nature of the artist’s work through its wide diversity of discipline and media. A major new Chinese and English language publication featuring interviews with Bruce Nauman, edited by Joan Simon and Tai Kwun Contemporary, accompanies the exhibition.
