OH.  FUCK.  YESSSSSSSSSS.  You are cordially invited to the latest installment of Color Me Porno, the Playhouse Edition!!!  As part of the NFA HouseParty that is about to debut at Villa 221, I am doing an installation in two rooms of their new upstairs gallery, Skybox.

Presented by Primary Projects x NFA

Closes Thursday July 26th 

The coloring wall at my show was really the most fun shit I've ever done, so I thought that instead of just hanging pieces in the gallery I would make the whole space like walking into the pages of one of my activity books: coloring, connect the dots, werd searches, etc.  It will be super fun and hilarious....I can't wait!!!  And its up for a whole week to party with!

If you come early, there will be free draaaaaanks from Voli Vodka 9-11

If you come late, the gallery is open til 1, but the party will be INSANE downstairs and in the yard.  The NFA dudes are Not Fuckin Around when it comes to raging!!!!  I really hope to see everyone out there...I am promising a good time.  Check the Press Release Below:

Miami, FL (July 10, 2012) 

– 

Primary Projects presents Jessy Nite’s Color Me Porno Playhouse, a pop-up produced in response to NFA’s dramatic return to Miami nightlife.  On the heels of Nite’s February 2012 solo exhibition Bad As I Wanna Be, the mixed media artist is expanding her Color Me Porno gallery installation into an interactive exhibition of pornographic proportions.  Just one floor above what is being billed as the revival of Miami’s golden age of parties, two giant rooms at Villa 221 (Skybox Gallery) will be transformed into an adult-themed playground.  Nite revamps childhood art games including connect the dots, word searches and coloring activities to both visually and viscerally complement sets by the legendary Tom Laroc and DJ Elle, with DJTonyG, Tommy Clark and Tony Bird Torrellio.  The first in a series of standout events by the NFA crew in more than a decade, 

Color Me Porno Playhouse launches on Friday, July 20 with a private preview of Nite’s installation sponsored by Voli Vodka from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m.  For more information and exhibition hours, please visit www.primaryprojectspace.com.

“This project with Primary Projects and NFA gave me the opportunity to create an unadulterated environment with no holds barred,” said Nite.  “

Color Me Porno Playhouse taps into that intimate - perhaps uncomfortable - shy place, and turns a traditionally private emotion into an over-the-top, naughty collective experience.  The hyperbolized sexual imagery becomes a platform to have fun, self-express and be free.” 

With Color Me Porno, Nite radically expands upon the draw-it-yourself and coloring components that emerged as a crowd pleaser at Bad As I Wanna Be.  The artist’s brash confidence and overtly sexualized line drawings lure the viewer into becoming willing participants in her work; and blur the lines between audience and performance, privacy and shared experience.

Jessy Nite is a multidisciplinary artist and graphic designer who studied shoe design at the Fashion Institute in New York and Art Direction at the Miami Ad School. She has exhibited both fine art and design projects in Miami, São Paulo and Bangkok. 

Press coverage includes HypeBeast, the Fader, and CG+Bangkok. Nite lives and works in Miami.
