Break the Laws Forever [E4] at DOG
DOG is pleased to announce the opening of Break the Laws Forever, an exhibition and immersive experience by San Francisco-based artist and DJ, Primo Pitino on Friday, September 16th, from 6–9pm.
For two decades, Primo has introduced underground music of all genres and styles to the Bay Area and beyond, building an eclectic community of freaks on the dance floor. His legendary parties include 2 Men Will Move You, Slow Jams, WOMAN, Oldies Night, and most recently, Club Lonely. Intrinsic to his events are his hand-drawn flyers featuring dancing cats and psychedelic fonts with cryptic messages of nihilism and affection. In addition to his influence on nightlife, Pitino’s work can be found on city murals, fashion commissions, and decorating the dark corners of beloved cultural venues.
In Break the Laws Forever, Pitino extends his understanding of form and emotion into his own visual language to connect with the people around him and navigate an understanding of self. This collection showcases a new series of gestural, large-scale paintings alongside original flyers from the past twenty years of his events.
Join us for the opening reception on Friday, September 16th from 6–9pm at 428 Waller Street. The exhibition will run through October 14th, with public hours and viewings by appointment.
