GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS!: A VERY SUBJECTIVE LOOK AT THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING FEMALE IN BRUCE CONNER'S WORK
NOVEMBER 11, 1999,
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.
