Meanwhile, following the recent exhibition of tapestries by Bruce Conner at Paula Cooper Gallery in New York, work by Conner published by Magnolia Editions appears in "BRUCE CONNER: IT’S ALL TRUE" at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

"IT’S ALL TRUE" is the artist’s first monographic museum exhibition in New York, the first large survey of his work in 16 years, and the first complete retrospective of his 50-year career. It brings together over 250 objects, from film and video to painting, assemblage, drawing, prints, photography, photograms, and performance, and runs through October 2, 2016; the show will then travel to San Francisco's MOMA in late October.
