Art Historian Dore Bowen and Curators Constance Lewallen and Ted Mann speak about their new book Bruce Nauman: Spatial Encounters (University of California Press, 2019), the first publication to solely take up Nauman’s corridors and architectural installations. The book explores the significance of these bodies of works—in particular their physical, perceptual, and psychological exertions on and manifestations in the viewer-participant. Further, the relationship of these works to Nauman’s overall practice and other work of this period, including that of James Turrell, Paul Kos, and Robert Morris, is investigated.
