|31 Variations on a Meal: Eaten by Bruce Conner,||by Daniel Spoerri|
Conner, (1933-2008) was an important American artist whose works defied easy categorization within either the art or film worlds. He used manipulations of structure and narrative to create an enigmatic sense of time in both his films and his overall career, and he was as much a collector and editor of the world as he was a creator.
Whether you are attending the exhibition or just intrigued by Conner's work, you can find a variety of perspectives on his life and career in the databases of the Wilson Art Suite. Art Full Text has profiles and obituaries of Conner as well as commentaries and reviews covering his work from distinguished publications like ARTnews, Cahiers du Musée National d'Art Moderne, and Artforum International.
