WAYNE WHITE: RADIO MAGIC EIGHTBALL
Julia Martin Gallery / 444 Humphreys St. October 2, 2021 - November 27, 2021
This Fall we welcome back the man himself, Mr. Wayne White. This will be Wayne's first solo exhibition of his most notorious body of work in Tennessee in nearly a decade. To celebrate the occasion he's bringing his band, Username Password, to play publicly for the first time right here on our front porch.
Radio Magic Eightball, refers to a game Wayne and his family used to play on road trips.
"When my kids were little, we played a game on road trips called Radio Magic Eightball - tune the radio to an AM talk show, volume down, ask a question, turn it up to snatch a short phrase or word, then turn it back down. The answers were frequently right on the nose. It was uncanny and delightful. My Word Paintings drop into my head in the same way. Turn it up, blah blah blah, turn it down, get to work. My question is always the same..."What's left to say?" Here's to the river of talk, a long road and good reception."
