Tony Conrad was an artist who playfully navigated the world in many forms and whose ways of thinking/actions is super inspirational. This is an exceptional documentary too. We screened it at the Cube way back and now we return to it with special guests and in desire for thinking outside the box.

"JOYOUS, EXHILARATING, AND TRANSFORMATIVE, Tyler Hubby’s documentary Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present is essential viewing for anyone involved in the history of music and visual art." – Artforum

“A sharp, sweet, eloquent documentary about the merriest, most artistically expansive minimalist on record. .” – Chicago Tribune

Acclaimed editor Tyler Hubby directs the first feature documentary about the iconoclastic American multi-media artist Tony Conrad, who has influenced artists ranging from the Velvet Underground to the Yes Men.  The film follows Tony Conrad’s strange and uncompromising 50 year artistic path through experimental film, music, video, public television and education and his unlikely resurgence as a noteworthy composer and performer. Conrad’s numerous works, interwoven with intimate footage shot over the last twenty years, reveal a remarkable, inspiring, creative life.
