Tony Conrad


Tony Conrad is a video/sound artist, musician/composer, filmmaker, teacher, and writer. His collaboration Outside the Dream Syndicate (1972) with the German Krautrock group Faust is a classic of minimal music, and his film The Flicker (1966) is a key work of the structural film movement. Conrad began to work in video and performance in the 1970s at the Department of Media Study in the University at Buffalo, where he continues to teach. His work has been shown in many museums and galleries in Europe and North America, including the 2009 Venice Biennale.
