2000 BC: THE BRUCE CONNER STORY PART II Education
GALLERY TALK
GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS!: A VERY SUBJECTIVE LOOK AT THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING FEMALE IN BRUCE CONNER'S WORK


THURSDAY,
NOVEMBER 11, 1999,
6:30 PM

FREE



Conner's work of the 1950s and 1960s not only pays homage to the important women in his life, but astutely critiques the degraded social and political status of American women at mid-century. For this gallery talk, exhibition co-curator Joan Rothfuss focuses on the artist's films, assemblages, collages, and drawings whose subjects include such women as Jay DeFeo, Jean Harlow, Minnie Mouse, the Virgin Mary, and Conner's own Spider Ladies. Meet in the lobby.
