Elusive signs : Bruce Nauman works with light by Joseph D Ketner( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intrigued and inspired by the neon beer signs on shopfronts in his San Francisco neighborhood, Bruce Nauman created his first neon piece, Window or Wall Sign, in 1967. He wanted, he said, to achieve "an art that would kind of disappear--that was supposed to not quite look like art." Light offered Nauman a medium both elusive and effervescent, but one that could also aggressively convey a message. Over the first three decades of his career, Nauman used the medium of light to explore the twists and turns of perception, logic, and meaning with the earnest playfulness that characterizes all his art. Elusive Signs focuses on the discrete body of Nauman's work that uses neon and fluorescent light in signs and room installations, and includes images of nearly all Nauman's work with light. After Window or Wall Sign, Nauman embarked on a series of neons that grappled with the semiotics of body and identity, and with My Name as Though it Were Written on the Surface of the Moon (1968), he forces the viewer to contemplate the role of naming in forming identity. Language--signs and symbols--plays an important role in Nauman's art. His later neon works emphasize the neon as a sign, presenting provocative twists of language and offering harsh and humorous sociopolitical commentary in such pieces as Run from Fear, Fun from Rear (1972). This series culminates in the monumental, billboard-size One Hundred Live and Die (1984), which employs overwhelming scale to bombard the viewer with sardonic aphorisms. In incisive essays that accompany the images of Nauman's work, Joseph Ketner II of the Milwaukee Art Museum (which originated the exhibit this book accompanies) and critics Janet Kraynak and Gregory Volk analyze the works in light both as a body of work and as an access point to Nauman's entire career

Winner of the Golden Lion for the Best National Participation at the 53rd International Art Exhibition-La Biennale di Venezia, the exhibition Bruce Nauman: Topological Gardens is celebrated in this photographic documentation of the thematic installation as presented at three sites in Venice: the U.S. Pavilion at the Giardini della Biennale, and two of the city's most esteemed academic institutions, the Università Iuav di Venezia and the Università Ca' Foscari. With a body of work that encompasses video, installation, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and neon, and that spans from the 1960s to the present day, Bruce Nauman (born 1941) is one of the most innovative artists of his generation. Through Michele Lamanna's stunning series of photographs, commissioned by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this publication captures the visitor's experience of encountering Nauman's work and coincides with the American premiere of the artist's newest works-Days and Giorni-in Philadelphia
Bruce Nauman : the true artist by Peter Plagens( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bruce Nauman (b. 1941) is one of the most innovative, provocative and influential artists working today. His pioneering explorations of sculpture, performance, sound, video and installations--always questioning the role of the artist--have broken new ground and inspired innumerable artists' careers. Confronted with what to do in his studio soon after graduating, Nauman had the simple but profound realization that "If I was an artist and I was in the studio, then whatever I was doing in the studio must be art. At this point art became more of an activity and less of a product." Exploring Nauman's relationship to the place where he creates his strikingly original works, this book retraces back to the artist's youth in Fort Wayne, Indiana, his graduate work at the University of California, Davis, through to the present day. Nauman's continual search for new means and sources of expression have led him to experiment with a very wide variety of medium (photography, performance, sculpture, installations, video, neon sign, and sound) as well as to explore the relationship between words and images. Nauman's apotheosis as one of the world's most highly lauded artists came as he was ranked No. 1 in the world by Artfacts.net in 2006, and he was the sole US representative in the American Pavilion at the 2009 Venice Biennale
