The Reina Sofía brings to Spain for the first time the work of one of the most relevant American artists of the late 20th century. This exhibition features more than 250 works that span the 50 years of the Kansas-born artist who established himself in San Francisco. Bruce Conner's work came out of the California art scene and addressed diverse questions concerning American society in the post-war era: from the burgeoning consumer culture to the dread of nuclear apocalypse. In his work he cultivated alternate mediums – now the hallmarks of 21st-century art – adopting different techniques and often creating hybrid pieces midway between painting and sculpture, film and performance, drawing and printing.
