Sorry, I am going to borrow from Margaret Cho again, but this posting deserves the time.
Starving Dog in Art Exhibit
I got forwarded this email and I was absolutely horrified. I cannot believe it. It makes me so upset I can't even deal.
Subject: Boycott Guillermo Vargas at the Biennial Centroamericana Honduras 2008
In 2007, the 'artist' Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, took a dog from the street, tied him to a rope in an art gallery, and starved him to death.
For several days, the 'artist' and the visitors of the exhibition have watched emotionless the shameful 'masterpiece' based on the dog's agony, until eventually he died.
Does it look like art to you?
But this is not all… the prestigious Visual Arts Biennial of the Central American decided that the 'installation' was actually art, so that Guillermo Vargas Habacuc has been invited to repeat his cruel action for the biennial of 2008.
PLEASE HELP STOP HIM.
It's free of charge, there is no need to register, and it will only take 1 minute to save the life of an innocent creature.
Thank you for your time.
