Total Environment, Total Consciousness
October 19 – December 3, 2016
Anglim Gilbert Gallery is pleased to announce Total Environment, Total Consciousness, an exhibition of works by legendary San Francisco artist Bruce Conner (1933 - 2008.)
Bruce Conner's work has grown in importance as a central influence in the formation and character of California art. Conner heroically created a new lexicon of film and fine art for the post-war generation, crystalizing the spirit of questioning and reaction against entrenched ways of doing things. Repurposing found films, engravings and discarded objects, he explored precepts of metaphor and history, physical and metaphysical, by means of a new consciousness.
