The opening event for Removed from the Eyes of Strangers took place on Thursday 7 January. It was a particularly freezing night, so thank you if you made it out!
If you haven't seen the exhibition yet, do pop in between 12-6pm on any Friday, Saturday and Sunday until 6 February 2010. Alternatively, come by for one of our Removed from the Eyes of Strangers events, either the Curator's Talk on Saturday 16 January or the panel discussion on Thursday 4 February.

The team at Matt Roberts Arts spent the first week in January installing the Removed from the Eyes of Strangers exhibition at MRA Project Space on Vyner Street, preparing for the private view last Thursday. Despite the heavy snow, everything went very well and the exhibition looks great!
Below are some images of us preparing the gallery space. We'd like to say a big thank you to all the Arts Trainees, volunteer invigilators and London Met students who helped out over the course of the week.
