Art Zoo

Art Zoo is part performance, part installation, and part living sculpture. See artists working live.

Art Zoo is an absurdist event that is curated to give visitors to any museum or gallery space a rare and exciting glimpse into the vibrant world of living and working artists.

The purpose of the Art Zoo is to put the working artist on display rather than the work. By doing this visitors can take on the role of ‘zoo visitor’ and the artist becomes a ‘specimen’, audiences can unabashedly observe the daily rituals of the artist.

If you have ever found yourself wondering…

What does an artist do in a day?

How long does it take to make a piece of work?

Are all artist tortured geniuses or is there a more playful side to the creative process?

During guided tours of the Art Zoo with Stephanie Cottle, your friendly Art ZooKeeper, you can find out answers to these things and more!
