Small Acts of Resistance at Black Rat Projects

Swoon, from her current show in Paris

The next show at Black Rat Projects is a group show with some of my favorite artists. Small Acts of Resistance opens on November 4th and includes Know Hope, Armsrock, Matt Small, Dotmasters, Swoon and Peter Kennard. It’s awesome to see Armsrock back at Black Rat Press and Know Hope showing there for the first time. Admittedly, Dotmasters may seem a bit out of place at first, but he did recently paint that wall at Nuart that everyone loved. As for how Swoon will be involved in this show, she will be doing a large installation, presumably similar to her show on now in Paris.

  • Interesting comment re Dotmasters as they’re probably more relevant to the show title than any of the other participants. A short look at the history of the man behind Dotmasters will show that they’ve been actively creating “Small acts of resistance” for almost 20 years under various names and guises.

    I’ve enjoyed Dotmaster’s artwork for a while, probably since seeing something that he made at Nuart a few years back, but he doesn’t have the profile of the other artists in this show and it also seems like the other artists have this hard-to-describe vibe (perhaps modern hippie, if that makes sense?) in their art that Dotmasters doesn’t share.
