ARTIST ROOMS On Tour is an inspired partnership with the Art Fund – the fundraising charity for works of art, making available the ARTIST ROOMS collection of international contemporary art to galleries throughout the UK.

Bruce Nauman rose to prominence in the 1960s working across a broad spectrum of different media including sculpture, film and video, neon, installation, photography and performance.

This exhibition at York St Mary’s brings together a selection of his art work spanning 30 years, exploring Nauman’s constant experimentation and re-invention in his artistic practice.
