Bruce Nauman (American, born in 1941), Studies for Holograms, (a) pinched lips, 1970. Screenprint. Gift of the Marmor Foundation (Drs. Michael and Jane Marmor) from the collection of Drs. Judd and Katherine Marmor, 2008.265.1. © 2021 Bruce Nauman / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York



Pigott Family Gallery

Conceptual artist Bruce Nauman created the five-silkscreen set Studies for Holograms in 1970, at a moment when he took a boundary-breaking turn toward new technology. The humorous images speak to Nauman’s exploration of art media and also document his ongoing exploration of the human body as an endless source of pliable art materials.


This exhibition is organized by the Cantor Arts Center. We gratefully acknowledge support from the Marmor Foundation Gift Fund.
