First Look: Bruce Nauman’s Foreboding Neon Masterpiece

New York | 14 November

In this First Look, watch as Bruce Nauman's fascination with language and meaning comes to life in brilliant neon. The artist once wrote: If you only deal with what is known, you’ll have redundancy; on the other hand, if you only deal with the unknown, you cannot communicate at all. There is always some combination of the two, and it is how they touch each other that makes communication interesting.” Discover Nauman’s realization of this observation through his minimalist neon masterpiece Eat War, offered in Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Auction.
