White Walls is proud to present Never a Dull Moment, a group show curated by
iO Wright. Never a Dull Moment will transform the gallery into a cohesive
environment that embraces all mediums of creativity from sixteen artists.
Never a Dull Moment features Anthony Lister, Alessandro Zuek Simonetti, Jaybo
Monk, Angela Boatwright, Augustine Kofie, Dave Potes, Jonathan Darby, Ray
Potes, Remi Rough, iO Wright, Erik Otto, Cheryl Dunn, Armsrock, Dave
Schubert, Sam Ash and Clayton Brothers. iO Wright has chosen these artists for
their “get your hands dirty” and “donʼt worry just do” mentality. Without
considering outside forces, they are urged to continuously create and express
themselves. With shared roots in graffiti art, this group has a flare for action,
immediacy, and unpredictability. Never a Dull Moment exposes viewers to the
creative mindʼs raw inner workings and draws distinct parallels between everyday
immediate expression and fine art.
Never a Dull Moment will be a transformation of the gallery space into a chaotic,
organic environment close to the heart of the artistic process. Film, sculpture,
installation, and large-scale wheat paste can be expected from this multi media,
multi talented group of artists. Embracing the connection between photography
and fine art, Never a Dull Moment will meld the two together just as they are in
everyday life. Several artists including Jaybo Monk, Remi Rough, Erik Otto, Augustine Kofie
and Jonathan Darby plan to create a site-specific installation to
accompany their works in the gallery. The installation will no doubt be interactive
and multi sensory, with few white walls in sight.
iO Wright is a photography based artist, writer, and curator. Along with co-
founding the street art quarterly, Overspray Magazine, iO curated Climb in the
Back Window at Shadowʼs Space Gallery in Philadelphia in 2009. Keeping close
tabs on urban art, she has also interviewed such influential artists as Shepard
Fairey and Erik Foss. This exhibition is curated by iO Wright and sponsored by
White Walls, Hamburger Eyes, and New Order Magazine.
