Evolution/Revolution: the Interconnectedness of All Beings, an art exhibition exploring human connections to all beings, is being held at the Santa Monica Art Studios-Arena 1 Gallery through March 27.

Curated by Karen Fiorito, the show features the works of William Wegman, Robbie Conal, Sue Coe, Gee Vaucher, Peter Kuper, Yuri Shimojo, Emek, Cole Gerst, Jonathan Horowitz and Karen Fiorito, with a video installation by Pouya Afshar.

The goal of this art exhibition and forum is to open new dialogues and explore human perceptions about nature and the environment, inviting people to make more conscious decisions about their food, clothing, furniture, lifestyle and pets, a gallery spokesperson said.

Evolution Revolution includes the artworks of some of the most prominent artists in the field of animal rights and welfare, the gallery spokesperson noted.

The show also features several public programs on the plight of

animals, including:

“Artist Panel: a conversation with some of the featured artists on arts and activism;” “Animal Liberation Forum: a discussion with scholars, lawyers, filmmakers and activists on the plight of animals;” “Kafka’s Monkey – A Report To An Academy: a one-man performance;” “The Annual Santa Monica Airport Art Walk;” and a closing reception which includes “Categorically Not: Political Animals with Robbie Conal and Amy Parish.”

This art exhibition and forum is presented by Buddha Cat Press, SoCiArts Productions and Santa Monica Art Studios.

All of the events will take place at Santa Monica Art Studios – Arena 1 Gallery, 3026 Airport Ave., Santa Monica. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, noon to 6 p.m.
