atCentral: Terry Allen & Brendan Greaves

Join us in welcoming Brendan Greaves, author of Truckload of Art, the definitive, deep-dive, authorized, and first-ever biography of Terry Allen, the Lubbock born internationally acclaimed visual artist and iconoclastic musician whose work bridges the disparate worlds of contemporary art and music.

This is a free but ticketed event. SOLD OUT — Join the waitlist.

For nearly sixty years, Allen’s inimitable art has explored the borderlands of memory, crossing boundaries between disciplines by conjuring indelible stories out of the howling West Texas wind. Tracing influences from his Lubbock childhood, spent amidst wrestling matches and concerts organized by his father, to his formative years in the explosive Los Angeles art scene of the 1960s, Greaves meticulously captures both Allen’s art and music careers.

Greaves will read from his book, then Texas Monthly senior editor Mike Hall will moderate a discussion with Allen and Greaves, followed by Allen’s performance of a set of songs along with Jo Harvey Allen, Bukka Allen, and Richard Bowde.

A book signing will follow. Books will be available for purchase from BookPeople.
