TONY CONRAD: COMPLETELY IN THE PRESENT

“Tony Conrad has slowly been emerging from avant-gardist obscurity over the past few years, and about time. His multifold career – as experimental film and video-maker, composer, musician and sound artist – still looks radical and prescient a half-century after it began.” The New York Times

“Tyler Hubby’ s documentary Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present, which sets out to make sense of this multidisciplinary artist...largely succeeds.  An exploration of avant-garde art that has little time for elitism or pretense. Hubby captures an artistic personality that could manifest big ideas without a shred of snobbery, could deflate pomposity while still inviting deep thought.” Hollywood Reporter
