Boo-Hooray Summer Rental is pleased to present an exhibition of abstracts and figure studies by legendary local Montaukian surfer, musician and painter Dalton Portella. The work is sometimes spooky, always elegant, mystifying, opaque and romantic. 


Dalton is an interdisciplinary artist, photographer, and musician living and working in Montauk. Born in Miami, raised in Brazil. He moved to NY to study art at Parsons School of Design. In 2001 he moved to Montauk. He has shown extensively on the East End and New York. He is currently represented by Sara Nightingale Gallery, Sag Harbor, Isabella Garrucho Fine Art, Westport CT, Robin Rice Gallery, NYC, and Roman Fine Art, East Hampton.

BOO-HOORAY exhibits both at home in New York City as well as internationally. We also stage collaborative exhibitions with the Hayward Gallery and Rough Trade in London, Tsutaya Daikanyama, Hysteric Glamour, and United Arrows in Tokyo, Galleri Operatingplace in Stockholm, Colette in Paris, PopMontreal in Montreal, Mishka Los Angeles, Printed Matter at both MOCA/LA and PS1/NYC, and Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, the New York Public Library, the Grolier Club, and Milk Gallery in New York.

Boo-Hooray exhibitions have included shows featuring Larry Clark, The Velvet Underground, Ray Johnson, Afrika Bambaataa, Jonas Mekas, Ed Sanders, Linder Sterling and Jon Savage, Spencer Sweeney, Houston Rap, private press vinyl, Wallace Berman, anarcho-punk group Crass, Jason Polan, Jack Smith, cult-filmmaker Ed Wood, and Situationist Times editor Jacqueline de Jong.

The exhibitions are drawn from cultural archives that Boo-Hooray excavates, organizes, and places in institutions such as Columbia University’s Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Cornell University’s Division of Rare Manuscript Collections, Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and the University of Oxford’s Bodleian Library.
