Snæbjörnsdóttir/Wilson’s socially-engaged projects explore contemporary relationships between human and non-human animals in the contexts of history, culture and the environment. Based on their work alongside avian researchers at Jacob’s Point, RI, The Only Show in Town will comprise artworks made in response to the plight of the saltmarsh sparrow, resident in the world only along a narrow and depleted margin of the east coast of North America and marked for extinction by the year 2050. The exhibition is supported, in part, by the Brown Arts Initiative.
