UBS Openings: Saturday Live
Tony Conrad
Unprojectable: Projection and Perspective

Saturday 14 June 2008, 10pm – 11.30pm

Turbine Hall

This sonic and visual feast features an amplified string quartet, electric drill and motors, alternative film production processes, film projection, and clouds of looming shadows. Specially conceived for the Turbine Hall by vanguard American musician/composer, filmmaker, video artist and writer, Tony Conrad.

Known for his groundbreaking film The Flicker, his involvement in the Theatre of Eternal Music and the evolution of the Velvet Underground, and collaborations with a host of luminaries including Jack Smith, Mike Kelley and Henry Flynt, Conrad remains a radical figure who challenges cultural conventions.

From 13-15 June, this special weekend at Tate Modern also features screenings of Conrad’s extraordinary film and video work:

Friday 13 June 7pm

Saturday 14 June 7pm
