With neon's flashy allure and an impish wit, Bruce Nauman's light-based works that mix tongue-in-cheek commentary and the eye candy of a commercial medium, are a large part of why he's often referred to as one of the greatest living artists. In a show called "Elusive Signs: Bruce Nauman Works with Light" currently up at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in North Miami through 7 January 2007, he's showing 16 of these works ranging from the "sexual politics" of Mean Clown Welcome (pictured) to his classic quip on the role of the artist, The True Artist Helps the World by Revealing Mystic Truths (pictured here).
