“MENAGERIE” ART SHOW AT STEAM WHISTLE BREWERY
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!
