World's first contemporary art exhibition for dogs

If you're looking for something new to do with your dog this summer, why not try an art exhibition?

On Friday 19 August and Saturday 20 August, The Hub on Tanner Street in London will be hosting a one-of-a-kind exhibition for dogs. It will consist of a series of interactive art installations created by artist Dominic Wilcox, all of which are created for dogs and inspired by the things they love to do. There will also be a gallery featuring original paintings, drawings and multimedia video exhibits created by other artists.

Once you've arrived with your pooch, you'll both be directed through the space to experience each installation in turn. These include a selection of paintings and drawings created in a dog's colour spectrum, a multimedia video installation that stimulates a frisbee bouncing around a screen, a giant 10 foot dog bowl filled with hundreds of toy balls resembling dog food, a head out of the car simulator that gently blows wind and scents through the air, and finally a series of dancing water jets that jump from one dog water bowl to the next for dogs to chase.

The exhibition is part of pet insurance providers MORE TH>N's #PlayMore campaign, which is encouraging pet owners to spend more time playing with their pet. It is also inspiring them to find new and inventive ways to ensure their dogs are emotionally happy and physically healthy.

There will be a limited number of walk-ins throughout the day or you can reserve your ticket for you and your dog to attend the exhibition here.
