I'm delighted to announce that COLL.EO's 2014 series Menagerie will be exhibited in the context of the Living With Animals Conference 3: Co-Existence at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Kentucky, USA between March 22-25 2017.
Living With Animals 3 presents wide-ranging artistic, practical, and scholarly work. Julia Schlosser, Jessica Dallow, and Martha Robinson are co-organizing “Seeing with Animals,” focusing on animal imagery and visual representation, beginning on Wednesday, 22 March. The conference also features the “Living with Horses” theme, with talks selected and chaired by Gala Argent and Angela Hofstetter, beginning on Thursday, 23 March. In addition, Living with Animals will be celebrating 25 years of the journal Society and Animals with a panel organized by Ken Shapiro and Margo DeMello, on Friday, 24 March. The organizers also plan to devote time on Saturday, 25 March, to issues surrounding teaching the animal.
