Call for Entry Details• Kokomo, Indiana
Deadline: February 21, 2020
The Elephant in the Room seeks to explore relationships and dependencies between humans and animals. Interactions with the natural environment and with other creatures significantly defines the human experience. The dichotomy between the two adapts and shifts according to time, culture, species, and circumstance. The Elephant in the Room challenges artists not only to bring attention to difficult topics like the industrialized meat and dairy industry, domestic animal breeding, homeless pet populations, and vivisection within cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, but also welcomes examples of harmony and mutual respect between human and animal to create a realistic and dynamic representation of human intentions toward animals. The Elephant in the Room will explore the enigma that some creatures are innately friends while others are innately tools for survival or convenience. This exhibition is open to all interpretations of the theme and all medium and scales of work.
