Constance Lewallen, BAM Senior Curator for Exhibitions
December 4, 2006; 60 Minutes; Video
During BAM's "Nauman Night" at the San Francisco Art Institute, Senior Curator for Exhibitions Constance Lewallen gave a lively introduction to the work of Bruce Nauman, one of today’s most influential artists. Nauman spent his formative years in Northern California, during which time he created some of his most strikingly innovative works. He began making sculpture in fiberglass, polyester resin, neon, and other nontraditional materials, and creating casts of negative space and parts of his own body. Slides and video clips were shown to help illustrate this fertile period in Nauman’s development as an artist.
