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

Tara Jane O'Neil Live

Host Joe Ahearn sits down with one of our final Leonard st. artists, Tara Jane O'Neil. This self described multi instrumentalist and her musical cohorts create rich cohesive sounds, which blend together so well, they make it difficult to tell one instrument from another. The creation is dreamy, compelling, and never boring.

This radio show kicks off with an interview where she discusses her time in the Clocktower, musical collaborations, and after hour shenanigans. Joe and Tara talk just before her performance in the main gallery, which can be heard here on the second track. The Clocktower and Tara are a perfect match, as they both end their 40th year, and look forward to future artistic creations.

Tara performs with artists Dan Littleton, Jean Cook, Mirah Zeitlyn, Ryan Sawyer, Marcia Bassett, and Samara Lubeski.


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. .
