They’re the diner you look up when you’re hungry and out of town, but I’m the home cooked meal.

They’re like that roller coaster at an amusement park you go to once a year, but I am the swing set down the street from your childhood home.

They’re like sleeping at the beach with a stranger and I am sleeping next to the fireplace while the Christmas lights sparkle in the room.

They’re the same old hike you’ve been doing since you were 12 and I’m the one who turns off a random road and holds you off the edge so you know what safety feels like as you fall.

Don’t you get it baby?

They’re like a pit stop on a summer road trip and I am an adventure home.

Animal lovers, I need your help - - -


Beginning 06 October 2017 and spanning three months, The Guggenheim Museum in New York will be releasing a new exhibit entitled “Art and China after 1989.” The exhibit is to feature ‘several distinct instances of unmistakable cruelty against animals in the name of art.

In one example, artists Peng Yu and Sun Yuan tether four pairs of American pit bulls to eight wooden treadmills for a live exhibit. The dogs are faced off against one another, running “at” each other but prevented from touching one another, which is a stressful and frustrating experience for animals trained to fight. The dogs get wearier and wearier, their muscles more and more prominent, and their mouths increasingly salivate. At this live 2003 "performance" in China, a video was recorded, complete with close-up shots of the dogs’ frantic, foaming faces. This 7-minute video will be on display at the Guggenheim exhibit (information from NY Times article “Where the Wild Things Are: China’s Art Dreamers at the Guggenheim”).

In another example, artist Xu Bing stamped meaningless characters all over the bodies of two pigs, a boar and a sow, who were put on display, mating, in a museum exhibit in Beijing in 1994. The Guggenheim will feature the video of that “performance” as well.

Finally, this exhibit will feature live animals (reptiles, amphibians, insects) that are trapped in a glass enclosure for attendee viewing. According to the NY Times article, “During the three-month exhibition some creatures will be devoured; others may die of fatigue. The big ones will survive. From time to time, a New York City pet shop will replenish the menagerie with new bugs.”’



If you would like to help there is a petition which I’ve taken the information above from and I would be ever so grateful if you could take a few seconds to sign. If you don’t want to sign at least share it with your friends, your family, anyone.


So please, please sign, get the word out, do anything you can!


This is extremely unacceptable and how any museum can believe such an exhibit is anything but, it’s just beyond me.




Time is running out and we must show behaviour like this will not be tolerated.
