The MIMA Museum in Brussels will soon hold a thematic installation that will cast a spotlight on specific works from a handful of established artists. “Zoo” pivots around the notion of anthropomorphism in relation to pop culture, strategically extending invites to those who often merge human-like traits with those from the animal kingdom.
Of those featured, much of the attention will be placed on Steve Harrington’s Mello dog character; portrayed by a two-legged, bow-tie wearing canine. Other noteworthy points of interest include Parra’s instantly-recognizable Parra Bird and Todd James’s animated figures. Apart from those listed above, “Zoo” will also substantiate work from Pablo Dalas, Egle Zvirblyte, Russel Maurice, Martí Sawe, Ryan Travis Christian, Rhys Lee, Finsta, and Laurent Impeduglia.
For those in the area, MIMA Museum’s “Zoo” exhibit will run from January 31 to August 30. Be sure to check out the images above for a sneak peak. Speaking of noteworthy art installations, check out Virgil Abloh take over Galerie kreo with a new home goods project.
