Tony Conrad: Doing the City is the first monograph printed to cover this pioneering film, video, music and installation artist's oeuvre of the last 50 years. The copiously illustrated, full-color catalogue includes essays by noted Columbia University art historian and Conrad scholar Branden Joseph; Whitney Museum Performance Curator and 2012 Whitney Biennial Curator Jay Sanders; filmmaker and Anthology Film Archives Curator Andrew Lampert; Swiss digital archivist Tabea Lurke; as well as an in-depth interview between Conrad and exhibition curator Michael Cohen examining Conrad's life and career. The catalogue also includes a bonus DVD disc, Tony Conrad: Live at 80wse. This disc includes live performances of Conrad's classic minimalist works "Chant" and "Early Minimalism: May 1965," as well as a lengthy video conversation with Conrad as he walks through his old haunts in the Lower East Side. This volume is a distillation, documentation and expansion of the acclaimed exhibition and series of concerts and educational lectures of the same name which was held at NYU's 80WSE Gallery in 2012.
