Bruce Conner and the Art of Juxtaposition

conner-imagef-00003Dennis Hopper called Bruce Conner “the most important artist of the 20th century”.  He frequently recycled stock footage, found objects, photographs, clippings, whatever, into “assemblages” filled with irony, humor & pathos.  I first encountered Conner via “A MOVIE” in High School nearly 50 years ago, and either consciously or sub-consciously, he has been a huge influence on my film work.  Bruce Conner:  It’s All True is a career spanning retrospective which will be at SFMOMA (San Francisco) from late October to January 2017.

“Mongoloid” is a Music Video Conner did for Devo.
