“ Bruce Nauman"
Co-published by Tate Publishing and M WOODS.
2024

This milestone publication serves as the first monograph on Bruce Nauman in the Chinese language. Marking a significant achievement in the dissemination and sharing of contemporary art within China. Accompanying the first museum retrospective of Bruce Nauman's art in China, held at M WOODS in 2022, the exhibition was organized in collaboration with Tate Modern, London; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan.

This monograph is edited by Victor Wang, Artistic and Executive Director of M WOODS, Andrea Lissoni, Artistic Director of the Haus der Kunst, Munich, and former Senior Curator, International Art (Film) at Tate Modern, and Nicholas Serota, Chair of Arts Council England, and former Director of Tate.

This 346-page publication, featuring a hard cover and bilingual content in Chinese and English, showcases new and original content, including essays by Victor Wang, Artistic and Executive Director of M WOODS; Ruth Burgon, Research and Public Engagement Curator at The Fruitmarket Gallery; and Henriette Huldisch, Chief Curator and Director of Curatorial Affairs at the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. Additionally, it contains a rare interview with Bruce Nauman, conducted by Nicholas Serota, Chair of Arts Council England and former Director of Tate, along with Andrea Lissoni, Artistic Director of the Haus der Kunst, Munich, and former Senior Curator, International Art (Film) at Tate Modern, providing an exceptional glimpse into the artist's thoughts—a rarity, given Nauman's infrequent participation in interviews. This unique collection of perspectives and insights makes the monograph a must-read for enthusiasts and scholars alike in China.
