REVIEWS

“Joyous, exhilarating, and transformative. TONY CONRAD: COMPLETELY IN THE PRESENT is essential viewing for anyone involved in the history of music and visual art.”
— Amy Taubin, Artforum

“An exploration of avant-garde art that has little time for elitism or pretense… Moby, Tony Oursler and others share their admiration for multi-disciplinary artist Tony Conrad in Tyler Hubby’s debut doc… Should both please longtime Conrad admirers and explain to newbies what people see in him.”
— Hollywood Reporter
