Tuesdays with Tony: Selections from Authorized to Surrender

Still from In Line, 1985

*Please note: This event will be held at the Lightbox Film Center.

For his 1991 exhibition at The Kitchen, Tony Conrad organized a compilation of his videos made between 1977 and 1990. Titled Authorized to Surrender, the compilation was screened daily during the run of the exhibition at the Kitchen. Spanning a range of subjects, locations, and exhibition platforms from museums and galleries to public access television, the videos gathered in Authorized to Surrender demonstrate Tony Conrad’s rich experimentation with video production and distribution. This selection of videos touches on the concerns Conrad articulated throughout his career, from questions of authority and will to politics and praxis on the ground.
