Probing the Essence of Art

The Center for Contemporary Art (CSW) is hosting Poland's first exhibition of works by Bruce Nauman, one of the most important conceptual artists in the United States. The exhibition, entitled Nie/No, consists of Nauman's works spanning several decades and borrowed from the Tate Gallery in London and the Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo.

Nauman deals with sculpture, video installation, graphic design, performance art, photography, drawing and film. In his works, he explores the essence of art and seeks to convey the mental process that accompanies the making of an artwork. He takes inspiration from daily routines, conversations and other mundane activities.

Most of Nauman's works are minimalist and conceptual items, while his favorite means of expression are installations and performance art.

The centerpiece of the Warsaw exhibition is a widely known video installation called Mapping the Studio II (Fat Chance John Cage) from 2001. The work sums up Nauman's creative output so far and stands as one of the most significant projects in American modern art.
