Ryder Richards (Dallas), Jonathan Whitfill (Lubbock, TX), and Piotr Chizinski (New York City, NY) are the RJP Nomadic Gallery. Established in 2007, the RJP Nomadic Gallery developed in Lubbock, TX as a community outreach project utilizing restrictive ingenuity (innovation through limitation). Most recently the RJP Nomadic Gallery participated in the Texas Biennial 2011 with Unpacking Access, where we revealed the “Gallery Kit 2.0” and at Blue Star Contemporary and Lone Star Studios in San Antonio with Dark Matter and Cr(e)ate.
