A  group exhibition motivated by the ever relevant song Paint It Black by The Rolling Stones.
Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and first released on May 6, 1966 on the album Aftermath.
The exhibition includes new and old works in a wide variety of media from the gallery’s artists and guest artists.
Limited edition t-shirts from Cali Thornhill DeWitt and B. Thom Stevenson created for the exhibition will be available at Chart.
A big thank you to all our collaborators for making the exhibition and installation possible: The artists, Chart, Gagosian, Nils Stærk, Dansk Møbelkunst, Republic of Fritz Hansen and B&O.

Paint It Black
I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I see a line of cars and they’re all painted black
With flowers and my love, both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby, it just happens everyday
I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and must have it painted black
Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts
It’s not easy facing up when your whole world is black
No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes
I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black
Yeah
