Bruce Nauman: Language Body mines the collection of the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation and presents fifteen works that showcases two elemental components found in the oeuvre of Bruce Nauman, anatomy and text. Beginning in the late 1960’s Nauman has forged a sensibility in his work where he puns upon the unstable nature of language and flesh, colliding these materials into a swirl of humor and insight.
This event was held from July 18 - August 6, 16 and was co-presented by Converge 45 and the Jordan D. Schnitzer Exhibition and Visiting Artist Series.
Converge 45 is a dynamic community of Portland arts organizations, galleries, artists, art professionals, and community business partners has joined together to realize the vision of Converge 45, an annual event of arts and ideas located in Portland, OR and engaged with national and international conversations on contemporary art.
