About the Exhibition

As the title of the exhibition suggests, Put a Bird on It is a satirical reference to the TV series Portlandia in which two characters working as interior décor specialists put "birds" on a variety of objects to increase their artistic merit and value.  This exhibition is designed to be a fun exploration of the bird in contemporary art while also showcasing work that pushes past the notion of the bird as a trendy marketing gimmick by prompting artists to explore this subject in a range of creative ways.
