Black Rat projects is pleased to announce that Thursday 9th September sees the opening of Matt Small’s latest exhibition ‘That I May See’. The title refers to the motto of the Robert Shitima School in Zambia. Back in March Black Rat were lucky to have the opportunity to travel with Matt Small and Swoon to Lusaka where they spent a week giving art workshops to young people from the Robert Shitima School. It was an amazing experience and Matt has produced a beautiful new body of work based on his experience there. The show consists of portraits of the children from the school and 40% of the proceeds from the sale of works will be sent back to support the great work being done at the school.
The Robert Shitima school is a school for street children and aids orphans which feeds, clothes, educates and provides a place to live for 250 children. We are delighted to be able to host this show and the works are some of the most beautiful paintings of Matt’s we have ever seen. ‘That I May See’ runs for 3 weeks and we hope to see you at the preview evening. Invites will be sent out via email later this week.
Black rat Projects will be exhibiting at two art fairs this October, Moniker Art Fair in Shoreditch and Multiplied at Christies in South Kensington. Details can be found at www.monikerartfair.com and www.multipliedartfair.com . Further details will follow closer to the time.
Best wishes BRP
