Think you know nothing about contemporary art and want to know more? Intrigued by what you’ve heard about the artist Bruce Nauman?
Tate Liverpool will be shedding light on the work of a modern master with an introductory-level tour of the current exhibition Bruce Nauman: Make Me Think Me. Tate Liverpool curator Laurence Sillars will present an insightful and illuminating tour of the exhibition on Wednesday 21 June from 6.00 – 8.00pm. Tickets cost £5 (£4 concessions) and can be booked by calling the Tate Liverpool Box Office on 0151 702 7400.
Visitors can enjoy an after-hours exploration of the exhibition, spending time learning about each art work on display. All of those ‘Why has that art work been put next to that one?’ questions will be answered as visitors move around the gallery space.
Forty years since his first solo exhibition, American artist Bruce Nauman has produced a prolific body of work in a range of media, including video, installation, photography and neon works. Bringing together a comprehensive selection of works from 1966-2005, Laurence has chosen to focus on the artist’s investigation into the human condition through the use language and physical behaviour. Regarded as one of the most influential artists working today, Nauman has been a significant inspiration for many artists over several decades.
At the end of the tour visitors can enjoy a glass of wine and fruit juice and discuss their ideas – to find out if they agree with the critics!
The exhibition Bruce Nauman: Make Me Think Me runs at Tate Liverpool until 28 August 2006. To find out more about the exhibition and related events please contact Tate Liverpool on 0151 702 7400 or visit www.tate.org.uk/liverpool.
