Joe Ventress is a Peck School of the Arts Graduate. His work in progress will be shown at
"I have long been interested in documenting communities that reside well outside of
mainstream social constructs including the ways in which they can subversively influence
the mainstream in both subtle and conspicuous ways. I have recently embarked on a
project to document the Punk and Metal communities of South East Wisconsin via
photography (for gallery and book,) and video or 16-mm film (for installation.) This
project will eventually expand to include national and international extreme music
communities, i.e., Black-metal, noise, Pagan, Hardcore, Political, Peace-punk, Anarcho-
punk, etc. "
For me, I see a community I have long been familiar with , documented in a sensitive way
that reveals an identity that is worn on the outside. An inescapable identity, an identity in
progress, a physical palette of past, present and future literally sewn together, stitched
into cloth and skin.
Come for the opening party, 6pm, Friday the 5th of September.
