Cute Or Silly? London Has Opened Its First Art Exhibition For Dogs

You’ve heard of kitten cafes and dog hotels but the problem with these institutions is that they’re for the enjoyment of us. The novelty is for a human audience and that’s not fair. Isn’t it time that we build a silly business for dogs by humans? We think so.

Dogs aren’t considered the most cultured species in the world, namely because they sniff each others butts and roll in poop but why should that stop them from broadening their horizons? At long last, Dominic Wilcox hosted an art exhibition made explicitly for dogs…

Watch that and tell us that’s not the sweetest thing you’ve ever seen? We’re sure the symbolism isn’t going to change the way dog kind views the concept of ‘identity’ but the initial aim was to encourage more people to give their dogs more attention and stimulation.

The interactive art pieces, like the dog pool filled with treat-looking balls, were specially designed to stimulate your dog’s mind. Even the paintings are designed to garner canine attention. You can find pictures of dogs staring blankly at these art pieces… not so different to us, eh?

One of the brilliant piece is Cruising Canines. This is a car window simulation installation designed to make the dogs feel the ecstasy and weightlessness of sticking their head out of a car window. I think we’re not giving dogs enough credit if we think they don’t realise we’re making them look the fools…

The creator of this project gave his reasoning behind this project saying: “Contemporary art has long been an important source of inspiration and fascination for humans, but never before has it been created with a view to drawing the same kind of emotions out of animals instead.”

Unfortunately this exhibition is now closed but maybe it’ll spark a renaissance of animal themed art displays…
