Artist Focus 27: Tyler Hubby, Threshold Studios and Paul Williams

7 October, 2013

Tyler Hubby

Tyler Hubby has edited over 30 documentaries with the most notable among them being, The Devil and Daniel Johnston, a picaresque biography of mentally ill artist /musician Daniel Johnston, and, Double Take, Belgian filmmaker Johan Grimonprez’s metaphysical essay on the Cold War, the rise of television and the murder of Alfred Hitchcock by his own double.

Tyler’s subversive and irreverent short films, featured in the book Cinema Contra Cinema by British author Jack Sargeant, have screened internationally, much to the dismay of paying audiences. His photographs have been sold, published and/or used as evidence in federal court and can sometimes be seen in Artillery Magazine, where he is a regular contributor.

Threshold Studios

Established in 1998, Threshold Studios is a not-for-profit social enterprise, comprised of four artists who share a common commitment to the role of art and media in making social change. As art producers their work encompasses moving image and installation art, the design and delivery of media skills development programmes, festivals and events.

Paul Williams

With over 20 years’ experience in the business and financing of the arts and sport, Paul Williams has developed feature-film, documentary, art galleries and motor racing projects. He is presently working with actor-auteur Crispin Glover to establish a Film as Art Cultural Centre in the Czech Republic. Paul founded Burning Bridges to form new, risk taking collaborations in the pursuit of out-post tethered art.

Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present

Fragments from a lifetime’s archive of documents examine the ideas, pioneering life and works of artist, musician, thinker, educator and trickster, Tony Conrad.

The journey explores an artist’s vast inter-disciplinary repertoire and chooses from it elements that reveal Tony in all his guises. From being there and working on creating the first computers in the 1950s to the making of movies best viewed with your eyes closed, Tony Conrad has single-handedly created and influenced the major art, film and musical movements of the second half of the 20th century. This installation presents Tony freely associating with his streams of consciousness, a playful humour, wit, resilience and candor, revealing an honest, humane way of navigating a remarkable, creative life.

Tony Conrad: Completely in the present will be shown throughout the festival at the Chad Varah House’s Rooms.
