Bruce Conner

October 8 – November 19, 2010

Bruce Conner was a reclusive artist whose artistic reputation is founded on an extraordinarily diverse range of art and his eccentric personality. This exhibition features his three-screen film EVE-RAY-FOREVER (1965/2006), around which are assembled a group of his prints titled THE DENNIS HOPPER ONE MAN SHOW, collages, and a set of three offset lithograph prints. EVE-RAY-FOREVER was originally conceived as a three-channel film for a 1965 exhibition at The Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University. The center screen of the film is a silent version of Conner's cult classic film COSMIC RAY.

This is the first exhibition of Bruce Conner's work in Boston since 1965, when The Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University hosted Conner's first museum exhibition.
