Conrad Ventur

Working within the media of photography and video for over last ten years, and more recently installation, Conrad Ventur is interested in activating moving image archives, whether finding material online or looking at specific underground film archives and repositioning them in exhibition formats. He often brings together pioneers of living theater with a younger generation of performers in live and recorded environments. Ventur is most known for his re-creation of Andy Warhol’s screen tests using the same central figures from Warhol’s Factory studio.

Ventur has chronicled his New York life with photography and the publication USELESS for over a decade. His single-channel and multichannel video installations have been shown internationally includin solo exhibitions at The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, MoMA PS1 in New York, and Momenta Art in New York. His work has been included in group exhibitions at institutions including SculptureCenter in New York, Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College in Annadale-on-Hudson, and Kunsthalle Winterthur in Switzerland. Solo screenings include The High Museum of Art in Atlanta, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and C/O in Berlin.
