Emerging from the San Francisco art scene, in which he worked for half a century, Conner’s work touches on various themes of postwar American society, from the absurdity of planned obsolescence to the dread of nuclear apocalypse. An early practitioner of found-object assemblage, Conner was simultaneously a pioneer of found-footage filmmaking. Set to pop music soundtracks, his quick-cut, often politically pointed works are considered the earliest precursors of the music video. An important voice in the American independent film community who also helped define a West Coast aesthetic in visual art, Conner created a body of work that exemplifies the kind of seamlessness between mediums that has become a hallmark of 21st-century art.
