Exhibition: Bruce Nauman

Co-organized by Tate Modern and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, this exhibition presents the work of Bruce Nauman (b. 1941). Since the late 1960s, he has continually tested what an artwork can be by reshaping old forms and creating new ones. His works using sound, film, video, and neon have influenced generations of artists.

This is the first major exhibition of his work in London in more than 20 years. It allows visitors to engage with the artist’s universe through immersive installations with a strong emphasis on sound and moving image, as well as poetic sculptures and neon pieces.

Exhibition: Mapping the Collection

The exhibition Mapping the Collection takes a new look at two influential decades in the history of US art: the 1960s and 1970s. Through a selection of artworks from the Museum Ludwig’s permanent collection as well as several key loans, the exhibition explores issues of equality, indigenous self-determination, women’s rights, and Black Power. The political and social context of these two decades form the background against which individual artistic response is studied. In turn, the exhibition questions a Western European conception and reception of American art.

This exhibition is the result of the Terra Foundation Research Fellowship in American Art at the Museum Ludwig.
