Urban Wildlife: Learning to Co-Exist
By Creature Conserve

International Deadline: June 1, 2018 – We invite artists to collaborate with scientists to create art for an exhibit that explores the lives of wild animals in urban areas and the human responses to this shared territory. Our goal is to encourage the viewing public to take an active role in healthy co-existence with urban animals.

Submitted artwork should reflect the artist’s effort to explore, through a combination of independent research and collaboration with scientific experts, the basic biology of their selected animal or animals, its urban ecology, and the ways it interacts with humans.

The exhibit premieres at the Rhode Island School of Design ISB Gallery from July 25 through August 22, 2018 and then moves to ArtProv Gallery from October 3 through November 9, 2018. From there, it will travel to other venues to be determined.

Open to all local, national and international artists working in any media including animation, architecture, digital media, film video, glass, illustration, mixed media, painting, photography, and sculpture.

The artwork could consider the following themes:
— Time
— Space
— Displacement
— Visibility/Invisibility
— Rhythms
— Health
