First there was Laurie Anderson’s Music for Dogs concert, performed for dogs and owners at the Syndey Opera House in 2010 and early this year in Times Square. This past weekend, artist and inventor Dominic Wilcox curated a contemporary art exhibition for dogs, reports Dezeen Magazine.
Three of Wilcox’s own works were in the show, as well as paintings and interactive experiences commissioned from five other British artists. Entitled Play More, the exhibition includes paintings hung at doggie eye level, in colors that appeal to dogs (apparently gray, blue, and yellow). A favorite at the show was “Cruising Canines,” an open car window simulator where a giant fan wafts a dog’s favorite scents, like raw meat and old shoes. Wilcox stated that he is “deadly serious about being playful.”
Don’t get excited, though, if you’re planning on a trip to London. The show was only open for two days. Here is a short video:
