Product Description

From September 2014 - January 2015 ONE Archives Gallery and Museum will hosted the MONTEZLAND. Working alongside Conrad Ventur, David Frantz and ONE Archives, Boo-Hooray has published an exhibit catalog for the exhibition. MONTEZLAND presents an expanded portrait of the legendary pre-Stonewall drag performer Mario Montez (1935-2013). Showcasing ephemera, photographs, documents, costumes, and film, the exhibition explores Montez’s role in and influence on the New York underground during the 1960s and 70s. MONTEZLAND includes recent collaborations between Montez and Ventur alongside documentation of Montez’s earlier works with Leandro Katz, Charles Ludlam, Hélio Oiticica, José Rodriguez-Soltero, Jack Smith, Andy Warhol, and Avery Willard, among others.
