Hi all! I’m incredibly honoured to announce that I’m taking part in this art exhibition! You can see the poster for the details of when and where, but it’s in Toronto – sorry out-of-towners! The lineup is absolutely phenomenal, having that many talented folks come together in one room is going to blow my mind. From the website, here’s the show description:

“Menagerie” is an art show that engages the imaginative exploration of anthropomorphism – the attribution of human qualities to nonhumans. Through visual study, nineteen local up-and-coming artists will explore the idea of anthropomorphism as a form of self-extension. As we “humanize” nonhuman entities, personal relationships are established, and a special – sometimes disturbing – attachment is then applied to the animal or object. This can be seen from our naming of pets, to drawing faces on inanimate objects, to shouting at a car when it has broken down. Through us, the animal/object takes on its own humanity. The result of this visual exploration is a modern bestiary – a collection of creatures, human and nonhuman, situated and interacting in contemporary society.

I couldn’t be more excited! Put this in your calendar! And Google all the artists, they are all fantabulously amazing. Their work will make your brain explode (in a good way)! Hope to see you there!
