Bruce Conner. It's All True
Rudolf Frieling and Gary Garrels, curators of the exhibition Bruce Conner. It's All True, and Manuel Borja-Villel, Director of Museo Reina Sofía, talk about one of the most pre-eminent American artists from the second half of the twentieth century. Conner’s work emerged from the California art scene and addressed wide-ranging questions concerning American society in the post-war era: from the burgeoning consumer culture to the dread of nuclear apocalypse. In his work he cultivated alternate mediums - now the hallmarks of 21st-century art - adopting different techniques and often creating hybrid pieces midway between painting and sculpture, film and performance, drawing and printing.
