Introducing the MORE TH>N #PlayMore Exhibition, the world’s first contemporary art exhibition for dogs.
Commissioned by MORE TH>N Pet Insurance, the exhibition consists of a series of interactive art installations by artist Dominic Wilcox, all of which are created for dogs and inspired by activities that a dog loves to do - ranging from tennis ball fetching, splashing about in water, or even sniffing the air as a gentle scent-laden breeze wafts past. A collective of artists have also created a series of original paintings, drawings and multimedia video exhibits for dogs.
The innovative, interactive exhibition has been created by MORE TH>N as part of its #PlayMore campaign, which sets out to inspire dog owners to be more imaginative in the way they play with their pet by highlighting the importance of physical and mental stimulation for a dog’s health and happiness.
MORE TH>N’s #PlayMore Exhibition is located on Tanner Street, Southwark in London and is open to the public on Friday 19th August from 11:00am - 5:00pm and on Saturday 20th August from 9:00am - 4:00pm. You can reserve a ticket for you and your dog to attend the event below. There will also be a limited number of walk-ins available throughout both days.
A ticket entitles the holder to a maximum of 30 minutes at the exhibition.
Last entry on Friday 19th August is 4:30pm.
Last entry on Saturday 20th August is 3:30pm.
Upon arrival at the venue, you and your dog will be directed through the space to experience each of the four interactive installations in turn. The list in full is:
- A selection of six paintings and drawings for dogs created in a dog’s colour spectrum
- A multimedia video installation for dogs
- A giant dog food bowl filled with toy balls resembling dog food
- A car simulator that gently blows wind and scents through the air for dogs to enjoy
- A series of water jets that jump from one dog water bowl to the next
The installations have been specially designed to not only encourage dog owners to play more with their pets, but also inspire them to find new and inventive ways to ensure their dogs are emotionally happy and physically healthy.
MORE TH>N’s #PlayMore campaign is also calling on dog owners to pledge online to spend 15 extra minutes a day playing with their dog. MORE TH>N will donate £1 to the RSPCA for every pledge made.
