LA Performance, 2017
Performance, acrylic on wall surface, 12 hours
A day after meeting John Baldessari, Shirt began a performance painting "I will not make any more boring rap" across the length of the a gallery wall in West Hollywood, timing it so that painting through the night the doors would open to the public right when he was about halfway done. While paiting, Shirt offered a first listen to his upcoming album out of speakers in multiple rooms. Throughout the day people came in and talked to the artist, watched him work, and listened to the music. Other works exhibited in the space were the gold record for Flume and Shirt's "On Top" hung backwards, a clothing rack of tees and hoodies for sale, and painted sculptures in the bathroom and on the roof.
