Bruce Conner (1933-2008, San Francisco) received a BFA from Nebraska University 1956. After living briefly in New York and Colorado, he settled in San Francisco with his wife, Jean Conner, also an artist. Conner was a pivotal figure in the San Francisco art scene since the late 1950s, and one whose work is associated with political protest and a radical practice. His avant-garde films, sculptures and drawings embodied the goals of experimental art practice and a spontaneous creativity that broke down delineations between artistic mediums. Conner’s Estate is administered by the Paula Cooper Gallery in New York.
