John Hiltunen | Valegro | Slide Space 123 | Mills College | Oakland, CA

November 3- December 2, 2016

What are the bonds that exist between man and animal; the closeness and kinship that exist across species – between a human and a pet, animals worked with in labor and sport? Valegro will explore these kinships and how humans and animals live with and use each other, how we cope with the world together at the intersection of empathy and projection. Work by Benjamin Ashlock, Beatriz Balanta & Mary Walling Blackburn, John Hiltunen, Sarah McMenimen, John Russell,  and Jess Smith.

Slide Space 123 is a site to exchange ideas and for conversations, a venue to connect the Mills community (students, faculty, and alumnae) with currents across multiple disciplines.
