Work for Valencia Capital Animal!

I have attached below the 10 pieces of work that I am showing in the Museum, Centro del Carmen!

“Lisa Gingles’ drawings depict human-animal composites on found paper.  The figures in these works are emulating the typical poses of the bragging hunter and incorporate  African animals which are under threat of extinction.”

Valencia Capital Animal

 

I have been so busy I didn’t post the last, but not least, group exhibition that I was part of! It was more than a group show for me and all the artists involved, it was a statement, a voice and a right!

The platform Valencia Capital Animal is organising from September 27, 2017 to January 7, 2018 a series of activities, concerts, exhibitions, workshops, conferences, etc. in the Center of Carmen with the common objective of informing, sensitizing and raising awareness about the reality of animals in our society. This autumn comes loaded with solidarity events in Valencia!

The inauguration of this event took place on September 27 at 18:30! There was a huge turn out!!

Another of the most important activities that is framed within Valencia Capital Animal is the Vegan Fair of Valencia that will be celebrated the days 2 and 3 of December.

For more details on the programming of this event you can consult its web valenciacapitalanimal.org

Admission is free. So you have no excuse to participate in Valencia Capital Animal!
