Still from Ann Magnuson performance

Highlights from the Hallwalls Video Collection, featuring recently restored documentation of historic Buffalo performances by Laurie Anderson, Ann Magnuson, Karen Finley, Rachel Rosenthal, Constance DeJong, and Ethyl Eichelberger.

Since 2004, selected recordings from the Hallwalls Video Collection have been preserved thanks to support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Television & Video Preservation Foundation. Hallwalls has worked with Michael Basinski and his staff at UB's Poetry Collection to make the Hallwalls Archive, including screening DVDs of these treated video recordings, accessible to researchers interested in the history of Hallwalls and the performing arts. For more information, visit Hallwalls' archives page.
