Punta della Dogana
BRUCE NAUMAN: CONTRAPPOSTO STUDIES 23 may 2021 – 09 january 2022
The exhibition in Venice is focused on a series of recent video installation that Nauman has developed in the last five years and are related to a single channel video from 1968, “Walk with Contrapposto.” The show includes a comprehensive survey of that series along with a number of earlier performances, installations and videos that provide the overall context for the recent work. From the 1960s to today, Bruce Nauman has constantly experimented with different artistic languages – from photography to performance, sculpture and video – to explore and mine their potentialities in a body of work that relentlessly explores the human condition while interrogating the very definition of what constitutes artistic practice.

From 23 May the Punta della Dogana exhibition spaces are open to the public every day except Tuesdays.
