"MY PRACTICE IS..."

What is in an art career? We asked artists to share in our ongoing video series "My Practice Is..." The series has been shining a spotlight on the act of practising art as a career. It exists to engage and inspire the next generation of artists to continue this very important work.

This episode features emerging interdisciplinary artist Matthew Rahming. Matthew’s practice is largely an exploration of black identity. It can be described as a study in cultural and societal norms surrounding the lives of Black, West Indian, and/or African Diasporic people. Matthew also has experience in museum administration and he is one of the artists from our recent "Refuge" exhibition. Currently, he is pursuing a BFA at Montserrat College of Art, Beverly, Massachusetts.
