Eduardo Kac: Tales of a rabbit gone viral
2 – 23 June 2018
The exhibition ‘… and the bunny goes POP!‘, curated by Bronac Ferran and Andrew Prescott at The Horse Hospital in London’s Bloomsbury, presents a selection of Eduardo Kac‘s works and pop culture responses to his celebrated work GFP Bunny, a transgenic bunny that glows green under blue light.
Ever since 2000, when Kac created Alba, a living, green-glowing rabbit, there have been countless materialisations of the meme-spawning bunny. The exhibition draws examples from the immediate response to Alba’s birth, her appropriation by pop culture, and the artist’s own response to the Alba phenomenon.
