A Bruce Conner Retrospective

Bruce Conner (1933 to 2008) was one of America’s foremost postwar artists. Getting his start while immersed in San Francisco’s Beat scene, Conner explored iconic themes of the era — from consumer culture to nuclear arms race anxiety.

Working in a range of mediums, he created hybrids of painting and sculpture, film and performance, and drawing and printing, and was a pioneer of found-object creations. Conner was also an early avant-garde filmmaker and developed a quick-cut method of editing that defined his work.

“Bruce Conner: It’s All True” is the first complete retrospective of his 50-year career, bringing together more than 250 works in film, video, painting, drawing, photography, performance, and assemblage.

Museum of Modern Art, 11 W. 53rd St. Through Oct. 2: Sat.-Thu., 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; Thu., 10:30 a.m.-8 p.m.
