Head to the Wolfson Gallery for a special performance of Tony Conrad’s audio-visual meditation. Pairing hypnotic film loops with droning strings, this is a rare chance to see a pioneering work of minimalist cinema and sound. Tony Conrad (1940–2016) is a pivotal figure in contemporary culture. His multi-faceted contributions have influenced and redefined music, filmmaking, minimalism, performance, video and conceptual art.
