PIONEER OF THE MINIMAL: A TONY CONRAD RETROSPECTIVE - Video

Presented at:
Hallwalls

No Europe (1990, 14 min), made in collaboration with Chris Hill

Beholden to Victory (1983, 26 min.), featuring Mike Kelley and Tony Oursler.
Writes Kelley: “Beholden To Victory is an edited video version of the full-length super-8 film Hail the Fallen. It is a 'war movie' genre picture. The film was not directed in the traditional sense. There was no script. The actors were required to play as in a game—to follow certain rules, or to be more precise, to follow certain restrictions. They were told only what they were NOT ALLOWED TO DO. Thus the film consists of a series of scenes, of examples of correct behavior.”

Studio of the Streets (20 min. excerpt), from the activist cable access show, starring the people of Buffalo.

Art Park One Year Later (1991, 20 min)

Tony's Oscular Pets (2003, 5 min)

In Line (1985, 7 min)
