Drew Conrad, Roadside Attraction



Drew Conrad is Clocktower's artist-in-residence for the month of August 2014 at Pioneer Works. Midway through his residency, he took a break from his ever-changing fabrication to chat with host Jeannie Hopper about his printmaking degree, craft elements, and his do-or-die transition to large-scale free standing sculptures. Jeannie and Drew talk about how nostalgia and Southern Americana pervades these works, begging viewers to construct their own narrative. The artist gives his take on dreams and memories as well as insight into the works' deterioration.

The Clocktower Gallery was founded by the alternative spaces movement pioneer Alanna Heiss in 1972. After a hiatus as a gallery space (after the Sept. 11, 2001 events nearby), the Clocktower Gallery reinaugurated its exhibition programming in 2005 as part of MoMA/PS1 and, after 2008, under the auspices of the newly founded Art International Radio (now Clocktower Productions). Clocktower Exhibits is home to interviews with and performances by its exhibitions' participating artists and curators over these many years.

For more Clocktower history, listen to The Clocktower Oral History Project, in which such figures as Vito Acconci, Bill Beirne, Colette, Jeffrey Deitch, Mary Heilmann, Jene Highstein, Ann Magnuson, Richard Nonas and Joel Shapiro reflect upon their experiences with this unique New York space. Organized by artist Nancy Hwang for the Fall 2009 AVANT-GUIDE TO NYC: Discovering Absence exhibition at apexart. .
