MIT List Visual Arts Center | Introducing Tony Conrad: A Retrospective

Sunday, January 06, 2019 at 12:00pm to 6:00pm

Building E15, MIT List Visual Arts Center
20 AMES ST, Cambridge, MA 02142

Throughout his six-decade career, Tony Conrad (American, 1940–2016) forged his own path through numerous artistic movements, from Fluxus to the Pictures Generation and beyond. Although he was best known for his pioneering contributions to both minimal music and structural film in the 1960s, his work helped define a vast range of culture, including rock music and public television. He once declared in an interview, “You don’t know who I am, but somehow, indirectly, you’ve been affected by things I did.” Introducing Tony Conrad: A Retrospective, the first large-scale museum survey devoted to artworks Conrad presented in museum and gallery settings, is part of an ongoing reappraisal of his creative achievement.

This exhibition, the first large-scale museum survey devoted to artworks Conrad presented in museum and gallery settings, is part of an ongoing reappraisal of his creative achievement. Indeed, because of the extraordinary scope of Conrad’s contributions to art and culture, this retrospective may yet be seen as only an “introduction.”

Please note: the exhibition is on view at the MIT List Visual Arts Center (Oct. 18, 2018 - Jan. 6, 2019) and the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts (Oct. 18 - Dec 30, 2018)

Introducing Tony Conrad: A Retrospective is organized by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. The exhibition has been made possible through the generosity of Galerie Buchholz, Berlin/Cologne, and Greene Naftali, New York.

The Cambridge presentation is organized by Henriette Huldisch, Director of Exhibitions & Curator, MIT List Visual Arts Center and Dan Byers, John R. and Barbara Robinson Family Director, Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts.

Not all online education choices have a similar procedure and style. There are several methods of online education available and http://canadianessayservice.org/eduzaurus-com-review/ would be better if you have an understanding of different procedures in use by online education workers.
