    About The Work

    Legendary underground actor Mario Montez was a favorite subject of artists Jack Smith and Andy Warhol, and was a founding member of the Ridiculous Theatrical Company with Charles Ludlam in the 1960s. While researching Warhol’s early films, New York City-based artist Conrad Ventur learned that reclusive Montez had begun to emerge from retirement after 35 years. They began a friendship through Ventur’s re-staging of Warhol’s ‘screen tests’ using the same methods and Factory stars, including Montez. They continued their collaboration for three years, Ventur noting that, “I began to think about people, not just the media in which they were recorded years ago.” Ventur has since produced a series of digital c-prints, videos, and live performances with Montez.
