Interspecies (free exhibit)

Ypsilanti, MI
Post #: 145
If anyone's walking around downtown, there's a great exhibit called Interspecies at the Gallery Project on South Fourth Ave....

Curated by Linda Kalof, Rocco DePietro, and Gloria Pritschet

Gallery Project presents Interspecies, a multimedia exhibit in which 33 local, regional, and national artists, filmmakers, and scientists explore issues of cooperation and other forms of novel interactions between different animal species including humans.

The Interspecies exhibit focuses on the complex and changing relationships between humans and animals and between various animal species. As a culture, our understanding of these relationships is often based on false and outdated assumptions about animal intelligence and behavior. New research mainly from field biologists and anthropologists is finding evidence of intergroup cooperation and communication including such behaviors as sharing of territories and food, cooperative hunting, reciprocity, mutualism, care giving, play, and anti-predator behaviors such as alarm calls and signaling. While cooperation is the primary focus of the exhibit, other forms of interactions will be explored including exploitation. We are also interested in what happens when animal habitats are encroached by humans and vice versa.

I went to this a few weeks ago. There is a great documentary in the basement about exotic pets. It was well worth the trip.
