Announcing the winners of “Dog Days” - Art to the Rescue open call
Introducing the winners of Dog Days - Art to the Rescue! Join us in congratulating 15 artists.
Hello, this is Kenektid X Gallery. Thank you all for your participation and for showing your loves for dogs through this open call.
The purpose of recruiting artists for this open call was to support Korean K9 Rescue (KK9R), a non profit dog rescue organization that saves dogs from the meat trade, puppy mills, and high-kill shelters in South Korea.
The planning of the exhibition started with an idea of changing an awareness of taking dogs lightly. You may have heard a phrase “dog is man’s best friend,” but still there are many numbers of dogs those are abandoned and abused.
We wish this exhibition could be a chance to change the way of thinking of the public, and hope this was an opportunity to the artists who participated to this open call to think about this issue. We also hope more people would know about the project of KK9R through this exhibition, and get more interests in dog adoption and rescue.
Our jury has carefully reviewed every applications to this open call. After much consideration, among many of great and creative works, our jury selected fifteen artists, and we are excited to finally be able to share their work with you!
We appreciate the interest you shown in this open call and thanks again for your participation.
