The Contempo Manifesto
Being nice is alright, but in a room where everyone can be just nice, it takes more to get noticed. That picture will surly stay in your mind awhile. That's what character is all about, adding qualities that create your own unique personality. That way you rise above everyone else and make an impression that lasts.
The ingenious trick of artificiality is to fool you. But what artificial things can never reproduce is soul. And so the best things they can ever be is imitations of the real thing. Originals don't have to pretend, because their the real thing.
To be conventional is easy, just imitate everyone else. But then you'll end up like everyone else. Being unconventional isn't very comfortable. Especially if you don't only do it once but live by it. That's what the great minds meant by unconventionality. Always doing things you haven't tried before and breaking out of the mainstream.

This is a great resource for artists, art historians and art educators with lots of links. The Princeton Online "site was created by Judy Decker, former middle school art teacher. Selecting outside links will cause you to leave the Art Education Resources website. While all of the sites listed were of educational value and appropriate when added, the web is constantly changing. (See Parent Note).

I was there the moment Bruce became a made man, (San Francisco, CA; 1966 or was it 1967 San Francisco Art Conference) where Nicholas Wilder showed Leo Castelli 3x5" transparencies of Bruce's work. Remember Nicholas saying something to Leo something like "this guy is the hottest thing happen".

Bruce Conner Bruce's work is important to me because his work challenged my preconceptions of what ART is. I saw his "moody, nylon-shrouded assemblages" in 1961 that were shown at a the annual San Francisco State Art Festival. Also, see 1970 Mandala and biography.
