Stephanie Hanor, director and curator of the Mills College Art Museum in Oakland, on SOUND OF ONE HAND ANGEL (1974) by Bruce Conner. She discusses Conner’s use of a light projector and his own body to create images on photosensitive paper, and the ghostly effects of the resulting prints.
Organized by Suzanne Stein
Remember the end of Manhattan, when Woody Allen asks himself what makes life worth living? (“Groucho Marx, Willie Mays… Swedish movies…those incredible apples and pears by Cézanne…”) In celebration of SFMOMA’s 75th anniversary in January 2010, Dominic Willsdon & Suzanne Stein invited 75 people from the Bay Area creative community to give extremely short talks—7.5 minutes or less—on a single collection work they cared about. The talks took place during the museum’s three-day celebratory weekend: two at a time, every half hour, 25 a day (a single to close out each day.)
