PIGDOGANDMONKEYFESTOS

Curated by Shaun Doyle & Mally Mallinson

PIGDOGANDMONKEYFESTOS is an exhibition curated by Shaun Doyle & Mally Mallinson, exploring contemporary artists’ manifestos and works inspired by the manifesto format.

‘Racing around a fireball is a blob of filth on which ladies stockings are sold and Gauguins prized, truly a most deplorable business…’
WALTER SERNER, 1918

PIGDOGANDMONKEYFESTOS has been conceived as a collection of contemporary artists manifestos. Celebrating the somewhat foolish idea of declaring your intentions to the world with the hope of changing it…

PIGDOGANDMONKEYFESTOS Is a tragi-comedy of baroque minimalist clownery, grandiose and ill conceived in the extreme…

PIGDOGANDMONKEYFESTOS Is like an over stuffed letterbox at election time and a landfill of a publication.

PIGDOGANDMONKEYFESTOS Embraces all the half-baked ideas, dead ends and prejudiced rants that make artists manifestos wondrous artworks in themselves.

PIGDOGANDMONKEYFESTOS

Accepts the paucity of the written word and in an unbridled display of generosity has included images made in the spirit of the manifesto.

'If art critics behave like naturalists trying to ascertain an artist’s complexity from a small sample of their droppings, then PIGDOGANDMONKEYFESTOS is a smorgasbord of odorous delights'. – Doyle and Mallinson
