Casa Luis Barragán hosts “Parameters”, the first exhibition of Bruce Nauman in Mexico, one of the most important living American artists and catalyst in international artistic practice toward the conceptual and performative use of language and the body. A selection of five videos ranging from 1968 to 1999 will be displayed around the house and the studio, establishing a dialogue with the architecture of Luis Barragán.
Presenting Nauman’s video installations in this iconic landmark allows the examination and demonstration of the architectonic and spatial traits found in his work since the beginning. For the exhibition, Estancia FEMSA – Casa Luis Barragán invited independent curator/writer Michael Auping to collaborate on the accompanying catalogue, offering insights on Nauman’s work.
