Bruce Nauman is one of the most influential artists working in the world today. The quintessential multi-media artist, Nauman has been a pioneer of performance and body art, conceptual photography, the use of language and sound as mediums, as well as video and site-specific installations. The Museum has recently acquired a new room-sized installation by the artist, Studio Mix, 2010. The work is inspired by a set of piano exercises that the composer Béla Bartók (1881–1945) wrote as a means of teaching children the piano.
