Matt Small – ‘That I May See’

This week will see Black Rat Projects play host to Matt Smalls solo show named ‘That I May See’.  The title refers to the motto of the Robert Shitima School in Zambia. Back in March Black Rat took up 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. 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.

Here’s the publishers blurb

Comprised of interviews with 100 key players from around the world, Beyond the Street offers a comprehensive examination of street and urban art. Insiders Patrick Nguyen and Stuart Mackenzie question each of their subjects on every conceivable aspect of the genre – from the past to the future, from the artists’ ideals to their daily lives, from working in complete freedom to working in the art and commercial worlds. The thought-provoking range of answers make the 400-page book an incomparably extensive source of direct, unfiltered information.

Beyond the Street features interviews with leading artists such as Shepard Fairey, Swoon, and Os Gemeos. The book also offers the views of representatives of the most important sales outlets for street art including Jeffrey Deitch and Jonathan LeVine Gallery. In addition, curators from auction houses such as Christie’s and Phillips de Pury comment on the development of street art in a classical art context. Interviews with key commentators, collectors, and enthusiasts such as Martha Cooper, Wooster Collective, and Agnes B. provide further insight. Brought together, these separate and distinct perspectives create a uniquely authentic collective portrait of street and urban art that is captivating, informative, and entertaining.

Each interview in Beyond the Street is richly illustrated with photographs of an inspiring collection of work. In addition to presenting outdoor work, the book also features the pieces that the artists have created for exhibitions and other indoor spaces. The commercial aspect of the street art movement is rigorously documented for the first time. Among the photographs featured are a number of images of the artists’ studios or the artists themselves at work, providing a rare glimpse into their methods and environments.
