|Working in sculpture, video,
film, printmaking, performance, and installation, Nauman considers art more
of an activity than a product. Much of his work parodies the art world as
well as his own insecurities regarding success and critical recognition.
In the Museum's neon sculpture, the two figures' pointed fingers alternately
illuminate in a continuous series of jabs.
