Ideal Brown thought to take some photos of the opening night. They mostly reflect how goddamned busy it was. Mostly. For that reason I’ve not got many photos of the curiosities themselves, however I think if they were to be done any justice, it would be best to see them in person if at all possible.
It’s a staggering collection that I’m so pleased to be part of.
More exhibitions like this, please. In fact, I’d rather it just didn’t end.
If for no other reason, go and have a look at Giles Walker and Butch Anthony’s work. It will blow your pip. It did mine.
On until Christmas at
15 Bateman Street
“Black Rat Projects would like to invite you to our Summer Party. On Saturday July 16th during the day we are teaming up with Cargo club next door whose expert chefs will cook up a bbq for BRP’s guests. This is a day for all the family: Matt Small will be doing one of his legendary workshops for the younger audience (if there’s space grown-ups can join in too…). To book for your kids email firstname.lastname@example.org with an optional £10 donation to ZAMCOG charity.
The day will mark the release of Lucas Price’s new print “Telepathic Heights”. The new edition (each one is uniquely hand coloured) will be hung among works by BRP friends, new and old, including: Swoon, Matt Small, Giles Walker, Candice Tripp, ROA and Brian Dettmer and Best Ever.
The show will be a review of this year’s projects, and an ode to the artists who have made the space what it is, as well as a look forward to future projects as we welcome ROA, Candice Tripp and Brian Dettmer into the fold.
There will be beer, bbq food, live painting from Best Ever and much more!”
