Primary Projects presents Jessy Nite’s Color Me Porno Playhouse.  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.  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 NFA crew.

“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.
