UB Dept. of Visual Studies & Hallwalls present

The Leslie-Lohman Queer Art Lecture Series - Attila Richard Lukacs

Attila Richard Lukacs is a Canadian-born, internationally acclaimed painter. He became famous in the 1980s with his large-scale canvases of skinheads. He has an amazing, rich œuvre with hundreds of paintings but has also lived the tormented life of a 21st century artist.

Jonathan Katz describes Attila as "perhaps the most famous artist you likely don't know." This talk will be a rare opportunity to view new works from the last decade, seen here for the first time in the US. Dubbed Canada’s “official bad boy” by the Village Voice, Lukacs’ meteoric rise and fall was documented in the 2004 film Drawing Out the Demons. His work is held in numerous private and public collections.

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.
