"i will not make any more boring rap" la performance (2017) acrylic on wall, 12 hours ig post


Only some hours from opening to the public, after an inspiring meeting with John Baldessari (to whom he did not tell the idea), Shirt chose one of the walls in the 3-story gallery space and began a performance painting "I will not make any more boring rap." across the length of the wall. He timed it, painting through the night without sleeping for the doors to open to the public right when he was about halfway down the wall filling the large area with sentences. The new album played out of speakers in multiple rooms. Throughout the day people came and talked to Shirt, watching him paint, and listening to the music. Other works in the space included Shirt's gold record for Flume's "On Top" record he wrote, flipped over and hung backwards, and a rack of his illegal streetwear pieces for sale.
