Tony Conrad

First exhibition in Portugal

12 march to 3 july 2022
Tony Conrad

Tony Conrad (Concord, New Hampshire, USA, 1940 – Cheektowaga, New York, 2016) was one of the key figures in experimental art of the past 50 years. Embracing fields as diverse as music, installation, painting and cinema, his work frequently offers a critical and humorous response to all normative aspects of culture. Part of a tour which last appeared at MAMCO, Geneva, this exhibition brings together several of his most important works, including Yellow Movies (1972-73), the installations Panopticon (1988) and WiP (2013), a set of “acoustical tools” Conrad invented, and other works in which he sought to dissect the functioning of contemporary media and institutions. The Flicker (1966) will also be present in this retrospective show, with two presentations of this landmark structuralist film scheduled in the Culturgest auditoriums. Throughout his public career, Conrad’s works were shown in exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, Tate Modern, L.A. Museum of Contemporary Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Documenta and the Venice Biennale. This is the first exhibition of this outstanding figure of contemporary art in Portugal.
