No Kings Collective Presents: ACTIVATION 2719
WASHINGTON, DC – February 11, 2010

Starting on Saturday, February 20th, No Kings Collective will transform a beautiful, newly renovated,
4-story Columbia Heights row house into a temporary gallery. The name of the show, “Activation 2719”,
reflects both the address of the location at 13th and Girard Streets and also an attempt to create life in
an unoccupied historic location. “Activation 2719” will run from Feb 20th – March 12th with the opening
reception this Saturday the 20th and a closing reception on March 12th (gallery hours below).

Moving forward from their successful installation at ReadysetDC’s launch party “For the Love of DC”,
No Kings Collective will continue to bring you creative exhibits and special projects. This event was
produced with close collaboration with ReadysetDC, and contains 11 unique bodies work from area art-
ists all reflecting both their mastery of craft within their respective mediums.

Activation 2719 is a rare opportunity for the artist to curate themselves, with themes that reflect their
own personal style and background. Artist were asked to produce ‘site specific’ small collections of
work to best be reflective of what makes their work both current and cutting edge. The range of works,
genres, and mediums within Activation 2719 are as diverse as the artist themselves. These artists
are contemporary in their niche while also pushing boundaries in art, both local and nationally. The
common thread of these artists is their instantly recognizable use of intense color and topics within in
their works, from the dynamic clean duct tape works and installations of artist Bryan Rojsuontikul to
the graphic pen style and social commentary seen within the work of Aniekan Udofia. Activation 2719
promises to be unforgettable merger of style and character. The opening event will start at 6pm and will
include a bar, food provided by Commonwealth Gastropub, and musical entertainment for the evening.
Music on the 20th will be performed by Bullfight Academy, DJ Fleg, DJ Phil Real and DJ Smudge. Ad-
ditional sponsorship provided by Fathom Creative.

Opening reception is RSVP only. Please RSVP at http://www.readysetdc.com/2719 by 3pm on February 20th.
