THE DROP

Avenue des Arts in collaboration with MakersPlace is pleased to present RATS, a solo exhibition by deconstructive pop artist Matt Gondek. This is the first exhibition in which Gondek has based all of the artwork on one central character in a variety of ways. The term “rats” is used to express annoyance or frustration, and Gondek uses the exclamation, “rats,” to describe the mood of the pandemic and the sudden cancellation of so many important events and exhibitions. RATS takes this frustration as inspiration and then leaves it in the past. The inclusion of digital NFT art might also hint at a common awareness in technological advances and an irreversible change in our culture following COVID 19.
