Although Introducing Tony Conrad: A Retrospective is the first retrospective of the art of this pioneering musician, filmmaker, and University at Buffalo educator, Conrad's work has been on view at the Albright-Knox numerous times throughout the years.
Conrad's work was featured in the 3rd S.E.M. Spring Festival in June 1977; the Western New York Exhibition in 1986 and 1988; In Western New York in 1989, 1991, 1993, 2000, and 2002; and Wish You Were Here: The Buffalo Avant-garde in the 1970s in 2012.
Two works in Introducing Tony Conrad: A Retrospective are making repeat appearances at the Albright-Knox. Panopticon, 1988, was previously on view in In Western New York in 1989, and Tiding over till Tomorrow, 1977, was previously on view in Wish You Were Here: The Buffalo Avant-garde in the 1970s in 2012 (as shown in the last photo above). Conrad's Yellow Movie 2/23-24/73, 1973, has also been on view periodically as part of our collection installations.
