Francis Bacon and Bruce Nauman. Face to face (english edition)
Francis Bacon / Bruce Nauman - Face to Face
A unprecedented exhibition catalogue confronting two contemporary art giants.
Francis Bacon vs Bruce Nauman: two generations of artists whose works were developed in different artistic contexts and are often spoken of in opposition to one another. One came from an English figurative background and the other from the American underground. However, in their own distinct ways, both thought of art as an experience and expressed the same fascination for the body and the frame, endowing the spectator’s vision of their work with a sense of constraint—even violence.
Issued on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at the Musée Fabre of Montpellier (July 1 - November 5, 2017)his book presents a series of works face to face, enlightened by essays from specialists as well as extensive chronologies. It renews in depth the way we look at these two major artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
