75 Reasons to Live: Mark Jensen on Bruce Nauman’s Wax Impressions of the Knees of Five Famous Artists

Local architect Mark Jensen, the designer of SFMOMA’s rooftop garden, meditates on the architectural qualities of Bruce Nauman’s Wax Impressions of the Knees of Five Famous Artists (1966).

Remember the end of Manhattan, when Woody Allen asks himself what makes life worth living? In January 2010, during SFMOMA's three-day 75th anniversary celebration, 75 people from the Bay Area creative community gave extremely short talks — 7.5 minutes or less! — on a single collection work of their choosing. Someone called it "manic splendor" — and it was. You can view all of the talks on The Anniversary Show exhibition page. Or look for them here, on Open Space.
