Bruce Conner’s latest exhibition does not feature the music video he collaborated on with David Byrne and Brian Eno, or any of his other surreal experimental found-footage assemblages. Instead, it focuses on murky and moody prints Conner made in 1970–71 using a new-to-market felt-tip pen. Ink in these pens dried out quickly, resulting in Conner exploring ephemerality in his drawings, memorializing them forever by photographing and then transferring the results to print.
