White Cube's second book with Bruce Nauman, Presence / Absence is published to coincide with Nauman's solo exhibition at White Cube Hong Kong in 2021. Including a text by independent curator and writer Joan Simon, whose scholarship on Nauman's work has been widely acknowledged since her 1988 Art in America article, this exhibition catalogue focuses on five of the artist's films. Making a pair with Nauman's 2012 Inside the White Cube publication, which centred on films made between 1967 and 1969, this new title brings together five works ranging in date from 1999 to 2013. The book foregrounds the artist's continued experimental approach, both in front of and behind the camera, and considers these more recent films within the wider context of the artist's entire oeuvre. Contributors: Joan Simon is an independent curator, writer and editor who has conducted a number of interviews and written extensively on Bruce Nauman.… (lisätietoja)

The most comprehensive collection to date of the artist Bruce Nauman's writings plus all of his major interviews from 1965 to 2001.

Since the 1960s, the artist Bruce Nauman has developed a highly complex and pluralistic oeuvre ranging from discrete sculpture, performance, film, video, and text-based works to elaborate multipart installations incorporating sound, video recording and monitors, and architectural structures. Nauman's work is often interpreted in terms of movements and mediums, including performance, postminimalism, process, and conceptual art, thereby emphasizing its apparent eclecticism. But what is often overlooked is that underlying these seemingly disparate artistic tendencies are conceptual continuities, one of which is an investigation of the nature of language.

Unlike many of his contemporaries, Nauman has refrained from participating in the critical discourse surrounding his own work. He has given relatively few interviews over the course of his career and has little to do with the art press or critical establishment. Indeed, he granted Janet Kraynak and The MIT Press almost complete autonomy in the preparation of this volume. In contrast to Nauman's reputation for silence, however, from the beginning of his career, the incorporation of language has been a central feature of his art. This collection takes as its starting point the seeming paradox of an artist of so few words who produces an art of so many words.

Please Pay Attention Please contains all of Nauman's major interviews from 1965 to 2001, as well as a comprehensive body of his writings, including instructions and proposal texts, dialogues transcribed from audio-video works, and prose texts written specifically for installation sculptures. Where relevant, the texts are accompanied by illustrations of the artworks for which they were composed. In the critical essay that serves as the book's introduction, the editor investigates Nauman's art in relation to the linguistic turn in art practices of the 1960s—understanding language through the speech act—and its legacy in contemporary art.

Tate Gallery London 2005

Bruce Nauman (b. 1941) is arguably the most influential contemporary artist at work today. His pioneering explorations of sculpture, performance, film, video, neon, and sound art have seen him investigating different areas of art years before his peers, providing inspiration for innumerable artistic careers. Exhibiting internationally since the mid-1960s, Nauman has always drawn on a wide range of sources for his work, from philosophy, literature, and music to gestalt therapy. He has collaborated with a wide range of filmmakers, musicians, dancers, and artists, including Jasper Johns, Richard Serra, Meredith Monk, and Merce Cunningham.

Nauman is the fifth artist to take on the cavernous space of Tate Modern's Turbine Hall. This book, a record of this unique event, contains extensive illustrations alongside working drawings and texts by the artist, plus an essay by Emma Dexter that documents the installation and provides an overview of Nauman's career to date. AUTHOR BIO: Emma Dexter is a senior curator at Tate. Her previous publications include Luc Tuymans and Cruel and Tender: The Real in the Twentieth Century Photograph.
