Winner of the Golden Lion for the Best National Participation at the 53rd International Art Exhibition—La Biennale di Venezia, the exhibition Bruce Nauman: Topological Gardens is celebrated in this photographic documentation of the thematic installation as presented at three sites in Venice: the U.S. Pavilion at the Giardini della Biennale, and two of the city’s most esteemed academic institutions, the Università Iuav di Venezia and the Università Ca’ Foscari.
With a body of work that encompasses video, installation, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and neon, and that spans from the 1960s to the present day, Bruce Nauman (born 1941) is one of the most innovative artists of his generation. Through Michele Lamanna’s stunning series of photographs, commissioned by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this publication captures the visitor’s experience of encountering Nauman’s work and coincides with the American premiere of the artist’s newest works—Days and Giorni—in Philadelphia.
Carlos Basualdo is the Keith L. and Katherine Sachs Curator of Contemporary Art and Erica F. Battle is a Project Curatorial Assistant at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Michele Lamanna is a photographer who lives and works in Parma and Venice.
