In 2010, a 30-year retrospective of CRASH’s drawings was Dorian Grey Gallery’s inaugural exhibition. In this reunion with the gallery, CRASH has collaborated with Remi Rough on a new series of exciting work representing the next stage in the evolution of graffiti and street art.

Jonathan Darby on Congo at White Walls

The show – which closes on 8th December – features paintings, film, photography as well as a floor to ceiling installation of a street scene and refugee camp. The show is a response to the artist’s time spent working with Aprart (of which he is the creative director) in Goma, Democratic republic of Congo, a city of 1 millon people. He worked with street children, orphans and former child soldiers painting large murals and running painting workshops. Goma is the setting and context of this show and the kids in this show are from and live in Goma. Last week, while the show was on display at the gallery in San Francisco, the city of Goma was over thrown by the rebel group m23. It was never thought that the rebel forces would be able to take the eastern capital. Considering the current political situation in the DRC and furthermore the involvement of neighboring countries, the exhibition is bringing attention to particularly poignant issues. Please check it while you can.
