Mis[place]d: Animals Lost and Found
Curated by Elizabeth Underhill
An exhibition of thirteen projects by emerging artists in photography, painting, drawing, video, and installation.
Exhibition Dates: January 9 - 31, 2009
Opening Reception: Friday January 9, 7 - 10PM
Panel discussion with select artists: Wednesday January 21, 7 - 9PM
Confronting growing environmental awareness and lavish indulgences on our furry loved ones, Mis[place]d critiques the notion of a healthy relationship between humans and animals.
Humanity has brought about the world's sixth wave of mass extinction, while allowing pet and pest populations to approach staggering, unsustainable numbers.
Engaging the humourous and nostalgic yet subversive, these artists examine animal losses, challenging misplaced beliefs about our relationship with them, and what may be found in this.
