”Artists aren’t engineers,” the museum manager observed ruefully.
”Artists oughta be shot,” a disgruntled trucker said.

Lone Star Studios and the Lullwood Group present Cr(e)ate. The RJP Nomadic Gallery continues to highlight functional design aesthetics and arts practice as highly influenced by existing infrastructures through a labor based performance and installation. Repurposing the protective shell of the art crate into fine art object through exhibition offers a metaphorical unpacking of typically formal objects, revealing them as purveyors of history and mystery. Arriving at 6 p.m. on Saturday night the RJP Nomadic Gallery will unload the crates from a 40’ Ryder truck and begin the installation in Lone Star Studios.
RJP Nomadic Gallery presents Dark Matter
Exhibition Opening/Performance on First Friday, September 7th, 7-9 p.m.
Blue Star Contemporary, 116 Blue Star, San Antonio, TX
Blue Star Contemporary and the Lullwood Group present Dark Matter, an exhibition and performance by the RJP Nomadic Gallery. Arriving in a 40’ Ryder moving truck a performance of transformation will ensue as functionally designed shipping crates and palettes within the truck will be transformed into the walls, lighting and stairs of a mobile gallery. Upon entering the gallery visitors will find a series of works by highly accomplished international artists, some revealing the typically invisible process of art shipping and installation while others highlight the tangential influence of art handling and museum practices upon their finalized works. Beginning in the Blue Star Complex parking lot at 7 PM on Friday, September 7th the venue will close at 9 PM.
