The exhibition curated by dogs for dogs

It’s believed to be the first show of its kind.

Doggos and pet owners unite!  Southwark Park Galleries present a contemporary art show curated by and designed for dogs.

The appropriately named ‘Dog Show’, is a selection of works chosen by 15 cultured canines who live with a variety of artists and curators, they were invited to select their favourite dog-related artworks.

With screens on the ground, life-sized dog soft toys in a variety of breeds and interactive toys strewn across the floor, ‘Dog Show’ is the perfect pooch playground.

The exhibition includes a series of Joan Jonas’s dog drawings, performances by Kroot Juurak & Alex Bailey both chosen by Whippet, Agnes who lives with her human companion/curator Joyce Cronin; Border Terrier Cross Ruby selected Martin Creed’s film ‘Orson and Sparky’; art critic Louisa Buck’s Samson, a Cockerpoo chose ‘Dog Duet’ and ‘The Spelling Lesson’ by William Wegman; Tess, a Border Terrier made a more sophisticated selection, Lucian Freud’s etching of his beloved Whippet, Pluto.

‘Dog Show’ is now open to our furry friends and fellow humans at the Lake and Dilston Galleries.
