The world’s first contemporary art show made specially for dogs opened in South London mid-August of 2016. Four of the stand-out works were created by Dominic Wilcox, a British designer, artist and inventor, who takes the concept of interactive art and applying it to the man’s best friends.

The art exhibit encourages dog owners to spend more quality time interacting with their pets, especially doing creative and unique activities. The interactive installations will also help to stimulate the dogs both mentally and physically. This two-day pop-up event in South London, sponsored by insurance company MORE TH>N, is a perfect bonding time for our canine friends.

In addition, the exhibition also includes original paintings and multimedia exhibits by artists Nick White, Clare Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson.

For every person that will pledge to hang out more with their dog during the exhibit, the organization will donate £1 to the RSPCA. See more information here: www.morethan.com/pet-insurance/news/play-more/pledge

“While it’s certainly one of the more interesting challenges I’ve faced in my career, it feels great to have created such a truly unique collection of interactive artworks for a completely new audience.”

“Contemporary art has long been an important source of inspiration and fascination for humans, but never before has it been created with a view to drawing the same kind of emotions out of animals instead.
