The Harris Museum & Art Gallery will present an ARTIST ROOMS exhibition of work by Bruce Nauman. The show will include Changing Light Corridor With Rooms, last exhibited in the UK in 1989. Representing the breadth of his practice from the 1970s to the 1990s, the exhibition features pieces which focus on body language, word play and repetitive gesture.

The works have been selected by the youth arts group, Young Harris. The museum will work with a number of diverse groups on the interpretation of the work, focusing on the use of hands and expression in communication.
