Language Body mines the collection of the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation and presents fifteen works that showcases two elemental components found in the oeuvre of Bruce Nauman, anatomy and text. Beginning in the late 1960’s, Nauman has forged a sensibility in his work where he puns upon the unstable nature of language and flesh, colliding these materials into a swirl of humor and insight.
