Our thoughts go out to Puerto Rico during this difficult time.

Dustin Wong

On September 20th, 2011 the Clocktower presented Dustin Wong, an exceptionally skilled guitarist experimenting with layers of intricately finger-picked improvisations and textures built through the masterful and precise use of a battery of effects and loop pedals. A founding member of two groundbreaking groups out of Baltimore, Ponytail, Dustin now finds himself in the DIY community in Brooklyn. At this performance, part of the Clocktower's performance series curated by Joe Ahearn, he showcased some of the new solo work he has been developing.


Clocktower Exhibits & Events


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. .
