Just Act Natural (2010)

The curatorial premise of the exhibition Just Act Natural focuses on a developing interspecies dialogue, identifying the private lives of animals and respecting their public lives. Just Act Natural invites artists to explore the differences between instinct and intuition, to consider the ongoing tensions between spectacle and snuggle, and the answer to the question: "How do you get the animals to do that?" Artists are encouraged to incorporate a critical and contemporary analysis of animals and animality within art.

The exhibition Just Act Natural coincided with the academic conference:
Animals and Animality Across the Humanities and Social Sciences
Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference, June 26-27, 2010, Kingston, Ontario
