The Guggenheim is gearing up for a special exhibit to air for three months beginning Oct 6, 2017 called "Art and China after 1989." If the Guggenheim's plans stay as they are, the exhibit will feature several distinct instances of unmistakable cruelty against animals in the name of art.

In one example, artists Peng Yu and Sun Yuan tether four pairs of American pit bulls to eight wooden treadmills for a live exhibit. The dogs are faced off against one another, running "at" each other but prevented from touching one another, which is a stressful and frustrating experience for animals trained to fight. The dogs get wearier and wearier, their muscles more and more prominent, and their mouths increasingly salivate. At this live 2003 "performance" in China, a video was recorded, complete with close-up shots of the dogs' frantic, foaming faces. This 7-minute video will be on display at the Guggenheim exhibit (information from NY Times article "Where the Wild Things Are: China’s Art Dreamers at the Guggenheim").

In another example, artist Xu Bing stamped meaningless characters all over the bodies of two pigs, a boar and a sow, who were put on display, mating, in a museum exhibit in Beijing in 1994. The Guggenheim will feature the video of that "performance" as well.

Finally, this exhibit will feature live animals (reptiles, amphibians, insects) that are trapped in a glass enclosure for attendee viewing. According to the NY Times article, "During the three-month exhibition some creatures will be devoured; others may die of fatigue. The big ones will survive. From time to time, a New York City pet shop will replenish the menagerie with new bugs."

Viral Message Verification – Well in fact this is a controversy, yet but true the Guggenheim Museum in New York on Oct 6, 2017 is planning for the special exhibition of Chinese art featured animal cruelty.

A petition was done in the famous site change.org, known for many other changes it has brought in the society.

The exhibition did not go well with many animal lovers especially with some of the exhibition events.
