First a dog was starved to death in a gallery in Costa Rica. Now the San Francisco Art Institute is displaying “Don’t Trust Me,” a video installation in which six animals are shown being bludgeoned to death with a sledgehammer by the “artist.”
UPDATE: The SFAI has temporarily suspended the exhibit, and it’s holding a public meeting on Monday. Be there and speak your piece, if you can.
What: Public forum to discuss art and ethics and whether killing animals can ever be considered art
When: Monday, March 31 at noon
Where: San Francisco Art Institute Main Campus (in the lecture hall), 800 Chestnut Street
