A journey through the ground-breaking works of this quintessential contemporary artist

Bruce Nauman is a restlessly inventive artist. Since the late 1960s he has continually tested what an artwork can be, by reshaping old forms and creating new ones. His ground-breaking works using sound, film, video, neon, holograms and 3D have influenced generations of artists.

This is the first major exhibition of his work in London in more than 20 years. It will allow visitors to engage with the artist’s universe through immersive installations with a strong emphasis on sound and moving image, as well as poetic sculptures and neon pieces.

Major works like Double Steel Cage Piece 1974, Anthro/Socio (Rinde Spinning) 1991 and Contrapposto Split 2017 will highlight Nauman’s distinctive preoccupations and how he incessantly revisits them – yet never repeats himself.
