THE LAST SUPPER (1977, 110 mins.)
Directed by Tomas Gutierrez Alea
A dazzling moral tale of a pious 18th-century slaveholder who decides to instruct his slaves in the glories of Christianity by inviting twelve of them to participate in a reenactment of the Last Supper. The film’s centerpiece is a sardonic tour de force that combines the blasphemous ironies of Bunuel with an ominous undercurrent of imminent political reckoning.

Tony Conrad @ Hallwalls


Culled from nearly 40 years of Hallwalls' still and video archives (1977–2014), this exhibition will serve as a prelude to Introducing Tony Conrad, the upcoming retrospective at the UB Art Gallery and Albright Knox Art Gallery, by showcasing a selection of performances and still imagery documenting Conrad's decades-long association with Hallwalls.
