Bill Daniel book release show: "Tri-X-Noise"
One evening only: Wednesday, June 6, 6-9 PM
Louisville Visual Art
1538 Lytle St., 40203
Bill Daniel is back on the road with a pop-up photo show comprised of 30 years of 35mm photographs beginning with the early '80s punk scene in Texas. Daniel has continued to document various subcultures using the same camera, lens, flash and Kodak Tri-X film for over 30 years. This exhibit, all non-digital darkroom prints, charts a path starting with punk shows in Texas and crawls through the '90s graffiti scene in San Francisco, freight-hopping scenarios, art openings in Los Angeles, house shows in Louisiana, generator shows on the Monongahela River, etc., all seen through Daniel's unique spelunker flash-lit vision.
Bill Daniel was a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship for Creative Arts and is an American experimental documentary film artist, photographer, film editor, and cinematographer. He is also an installation artist, curator and former zine publisher. His full-length film, "Who is Bozo Texino?," about the tradition of hobo and railworker boxcar graffiti, was completed in 2005 and has screened extensively throughout the United States and Europe.
