It is a reality that we all share our homes with others. These other occupants may be people of whom we are aware, but also a large number of creatures who have taken up residence without invitation. This exhibition will feature artworks representing creatures we commonly (and often reluctantly) cohabit with in urban and suburban environments. This includes all manner of critters, such as mice, rats, bed bugs, ticks, cockroaches, spiders, squirrels, raccoons, pigeons, flies, mosquitoes, wasps, and so on. Our relationship with these creatures may be shaped by love or hatred. The artists in this exhibition will explore the many ways that these creatures have inspired artworks.
This exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog.
