Bruce Conner : The 70s │By (author)  Ursula Blickle , By (author)  Matt Gerald , By (author)  Malcolm Turvey , Edited by Barbara Steffen


Few artists have contributed seminal works to as many genres as Bruce Conner (1933-2008). An assemblage artist famed for his use of nylon stockings, he also pioneered the use of found footage and the high-speed film editing now familiar to us from MTV, and was one of the earliest filmmakers to use pop and soul music on his soundtracks. In the 1960s, Conner collaborated with Toni Basil (of "Mickey" fame) on his dance film "Breakaway," and in the 1970s with Devo, David Byrne and Brian Eno on music videos. This survey examines the formal parallels between Conner's works as an artist and filmmaker, and looks at drawings, oil and acrylic paintings, lithographs, prints, photograms and photographs alongside three of Conner's best-known films: "Breakaway" (1966), "Crossroads" (1976), and "Marilyn Times Five" (1968-1973).
