Eyal Press

journalist & author of Absolute Convictions: My Father, a City, & the Conflict That Divided America

Presented at:
Hallwalls

With Roe v. Wade's legal protections of women's reproductive rights now threatened by the new composition of the U.S. Supreme Court, Buffalo native and Nichols School graduate Eyal Press has just published this timely personal history. The city is Buffalo, the conflict is over abortion, and Eyal's father is OB-GYN Dr. Shalom Press, a colleague of murdered Buffalo physician Dr. Barnett Slepian and another of the abortion providers whose clinics were besieged but—thanks to clinic defenders—not shut down during Operation Rescue's 1992 assault on Buffalo, vividly chronicled in the book.

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.
