Matt Small — That I May See Exhibition

This Thursday 9 September will see the opening of Matt Small’s latest exhibition ‘That I May See’ at The Black Rat Gallery. The title of the show refers to the motto of the Robert Shitima School in Zambia.

Back in March of this year Matt Small travelled to Lusaka along with NY artist Swoon and Black Rat where they spent a week giving art workshops to young people from the Robert Shitima School. Matt's new body of work is 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. ‘That I May See’ will runs for three weeks  at the gallery.
