TONY CONRAD

Tony Conrad (Concord, New Hampshire, USA, 1940 – Cheektowaga, New York, 2016) was one of the most important names in experimentalism in western art of the past 50 years. His work encompasses areas as distinctive as music, video, painting or cinema and was permeated both by an acute conscience of the normative aspects of culture, and by the ability to respond to them in a critical and good-humoured way. This exhibition brings together several of his most important works, including the film The Flicker (1966) – one of the most celebrated works of structuralist cinema – or the Yellow Movies (1972-73) – a series in which the artist tries to merge cinema, photography and painting –, but also several of the musical instruments he invented and some of the works in which he focused on dissecting how contemporary media and institutions work. Included in an itinerant show which was last shown at MAMCO, in Geneva, this is the first exhibition of this inescapable figure of contemporaneity in Portugal.
