A Rose Has No Teeth: Bruce Nauman in the 1960s”
THE MENIL COLLECTION – Huston
“A Rose Has No Teeth: Bruce Nauman in the 1960s”
Through January 13 2008
Today Bruce Nauman (b. 1941) is one of the most widely recognized artists in contemporary art. Few, of course, knew his name when he was a graduate student at University of California (Davis) in the mid-1960s. During this period Nauman produced work in a variety of media, including performance, conceptual photography, and sculpture.
These early experiments, in which he discovered process to be more fundamental than product, established his reputation as one of the most innovative artists of his generation.
Organized by Constance Lewallen, senior curator of exhibitions at the University of California’s Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, where the exhibition was first presented, A Rose Has No Teeth: Bruce Nauman’s Formative Years presents the full range of the artist’s work from this period, including sculpture, ephemera, documentation of performances, artist books, and video.
