White Walls is pleased to present “CONGO,” a solo exhibition featuring new works from British artist Jonathan Darby. “CONGO” will feature a collection of mixed media paintings on wood as part of a gallery-transforming installation and a portion of the proceeds will go directly to children’s charity AptART. The opening reception will be Saturday, November 10th from 7-11 PM, and is free and open to the public for viewing through December 8th, 2012.
Darby will transform the conventional white walls and gallery space into an incredible floor to ceiling installation of painting, sound, photography and film. The show is a response to Darby’s recent work in the war torn eastern city of Goma where he directed painting projects along with children’s charity, AptART, of which he is the co-founder and Creative Director. Each piece of art features a child from the project and incorporates elements of Darby’s own photography. For more information on the charity or to donate to AptART please click here.
