Conrad Ventur

Working within the media of photography and video for the last ten years, and more recently using installation, 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. Born in Seattle, raised in New Haven, and living in New York since 2000, Ventur has chronicled his New York life with photography and the publication USELESS for over a decade. His single-channel and multi-channel video installations have been shown internationally. Ventur recently exhibited at The Andy Warhol Museum; Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College; MoMA PS1; Moscow International Biennial III and Kunsthalle Winterthur, Switzerland. Recent solo screenings include The High Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and C/O, Berlin. In 2012, Ventur's 13 Most Beautiful/Screen Tests Revisited (2009-2011) were acquired by The Whitney Museum of American Art.
