BRUCE CONNER

When artists such as Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol were defining New York pop art, the maverick Conner was taking his own jaundiced, ironic, west coast view of a US he saw as violent, sex-obsessed and corrupt. A Movie (1958), showing here, is one of the very first US experiments in film as art. Like his assemblages of everyday stuff, it is a collage of found images.

Thomas Dane Gallery, SW1, to 4 July
