Screening of Tony Oursler’s Synesthesia
April 27 – 30 Tony Oursler’s Synesthesia was shown at Magasin III.
Synesthesia is a series of filmed interviews with twelve legendary figures in the downtown music, performance and art scenes in New York: Laurie Anderson, Glenn Branca, David Byrne, John Cale, Tony Conrad, Kim Gordon, Dan Graham, Arto Lindsay, Lydia Lunch, Thurston Moore, Genesis P-Orridge, and Alan Vega. Total length of all 12 films is 9,5 hours.
These conversations, filmed between 1997 – 2001, were originally included as one element of Oursler and Mike Kelley’s multimedia installation The Poetics Project. These films reveal fascinating insights and anecdotes from some of the most influential figures in the experimental rock and art underground of the 1970s and ’80s.
