MacConnel is a seminal figure in the Pattern and Decoration movement of the seventies, but overall MacConnel’s oeuvre has surpassed being categorized. MacConnel received his BA, with honors, from the University of California, San Diego in 1969 and his MFA, also with honors, in 1972. MacConnel had a lot of trouble starting out as an artist due to the fact that he had to come up against the minimalism of the time in the 1970s. During the Minimalist movement, artists weren’t interested in color or even painting for the most part; MacConnel’s art just wasn’t accepted as serious. It also had partly to do with his material, instead of painting on stretched canvas, MacConnel instead painted on fabric and bed sheets, which he would tear apart and sew back together again. It wasn’t until MacConnel was in an exhibition in Germany that his art became recognized. In 1969 MacConnel received his BA from UCSD and an MFA in 1972. He has taught in the Visual Arts Department in various capacities between 1976 and 1980, and permanently since 1987 until retirement in 2009. His work has been exhibited in the Whitney Museum of American Art Biennial Exhibition’s in 1975, 1977, 1979, 1981, and 1985; The Museum of Modern Art’s An International Survey of Recent Painting and Sculpture, 1984; The Venice Biennale, 1984; inSite 1992, 1994. MacConnel is one of the founding artists of the Pattern and Decoration movement of the 1970s, and began showing with the Holly Solomon Gallery, NY in 1976. His work is in numerous public collections including the Albright Knox, Buffalo, NY; Brooklyn Museum; Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; Fowler Museum, UCLA; Frederick R. Weisman Collection, Los Angeles; McNay Museum, San Antonio; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City; Neue Galerie/Sammlung Ludwig, Aachen, Germany; Harrison Museum of Art, Utah State University, Logan; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY.
