Screened in conjunction with Jay DeFeo: A Retrospective, Bruce Conner’s short film, THE WHITE ROSE (1967), chronicles the removal of DeFeo’s nearly one-ton masterpiece, The Rose (1958-66), from her second-story San Francisco studio. Set to Miles Davis’s Sketches of Spain, the seven-minute long film will run continuously in the Museum’s second-floor Kaufman Astoria Studios Film and Video Gallery, April 25 through May 12.
THE WHITE ROSE is organized by Dana Miller, Curator of the Permanent Collection.
