Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Arts Center presents: BRING YOUR OWN TONY, a special screening of films and videos in which the late Tony Conrad appeared or participated in.
Conrad—one of Squeaky Wheel’s founders—was a prolific collaborator, and never shied away from being part of the works of his friends, students, and colleagues. As part of the retrospective exhibition, Tony Conrad: An Introduction, presented by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the University at Buffalo Art Galleries, BRING YOUR OWN TONY honors the artist’s collaborative spirit by highlighting a few of the many art projects, both known and unknown, that he enthusiastically participated in.
Did Tony star in your zombie flick? Did he play the accordion in the corner of your performance-art video? Do you have a cellphone clip of him goofing around in the Hotel Lennox? Send us your work! Your submissions will be considered for a screening that will take place on May 11 2018.
Artists included in BRING YOUR OWN TONY will receive a $50 screening fee per work. All works will be screened in digital formats; if selected works have not been digitized, Squeaky Wheel will contact you to discuss non-archival digital transfer options.
To submit your work for consideration please fill out the following form with information about your video work featuring Tony.
The deadline to send your work is March 1, 2018. All applicants will be notified by April 1, 2018. The screening of BRING YOUR OWN TONY will take place on May 11, 2018.
BRING YOUR OWN TONY will take place on May 11, 2017, 7pm at Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center (617 Main Street, Buffalo, NY 14203). If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
