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.
