Bruce Nauman

March 24 - June 16, 1996
Curator: David Neuman

The exhibition at Magasin 3 is Bruce Nauman’s first solo exhibition in Sweden and the most comprehensive in Scandinavia presenting seven works by the American artist. Bruce Nauman was born 1941 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA. His first studio was a former grocery store with a blinking neon sign advertising beer. Nauman soon adapted this explicit, simple and commercial medium in his art. In the 60’s Bruce Nauman often used himself as an object in series of films and performances. Durig the 80’s he returned to this expression, for example in the video “Green Horses” where the artist rides a horse in New Mexico. By subjecting the horse repeatedly to what it is frightened of, he tames it.
