13 Most Beautiful: Mario Montez2011

Screen Tests Revisted

  • 2.0
Forty-five years after Andy Warhol’s seminal SCREEN TESTS, New York artist Conrad Ventur gathered together thirteen beautiful people from the Factory demimonde to recreate their earlier portraits. The new films follow Warhol’s minimalist design both in terms of framing and duration (a three minute shot projected back at a slightly slower speed), though the sense of “passing time” now registers in terms of decades rather than minutes. This installment features Mario Montez, star of many foundational underground movies (e.g. Jack Smith’s FLAMING CREATURES, Ron Rice’s CHUMLUM) and one of Ventur’s primary inspirations. “This was the first time since the late 70s that Mario, in full drag, had collaborated with an artist,” Ventur wrote, “and I appreciate that he extended that honor to me. - Max Goldberg
