FICTION DICTION/ PERFORMANCE

Presented at:
Hallwalls

Glenn O'Brien reads fiction and non-fiction, with musical selections from Glenn O'Brien's Beat, his monthly rock music survey for Interview magazine.

(ARCHIVAL NOTE: I invited Glenn O'Brien to visit Buffalo on March 4, 1987 as part of the Fiction Diction series I had started programming in fall 1984. O'Brien's visit to Buffalo and appearance at Hallwalls was just 10 days away when his good friend and Interview magazine employer Andy Warhol died unexpectedly on February 22, 1987. At his reading at Buff State (jointly sponsored by Fiction Diction and Critical Issues)O'Brien read a new piece about Warhol he had written on January 28/29, 1987, with a one-paragraph coda he appended the day after Warhol's death, February 23, 1987; O'Brien gave me this piece—entitled "Andy"—and another piece entitled "The Typical New Yorker" for publication in the Hallwalls prose anthology I then edited, Blatant Artifice No. 2/3, pages 101–105. I just got the news today, April 7, 2017, thirty years later, that Glenn O'Brien has died. Edmund Cardoni, 4/7/2017, 2:00 p.m.)

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.
