IPS ASP Chicago 2016

Primate Art Exhibits at the Joint Meeting of
IPS/ASP in Chicago, August 2016

We are very excited to announce that several exhibits of primate art will be included at the Joint Meeting of IPS/ASP at Chicago’s Navy Pier in August 2016.  At least four significant exhibitions will be available for viewing throughout the meeting, in addition to a Nonhuman Primate Tattoo contest.

Primates: The Jean Baulu Collection of Antique Prints.
Sponsor: The Barbados Primate Research Center and Wildlife Reserve.

Jean Baulu will display approximately 100 framed, curated prints from his collection of over 2,500 antique originals.  Parts of his collection were displayed at the 1992 IPS meeting in Strasbourg, France, the 1993 ASP meeting in Sturbridge, MA, and have since also appeared in the American Museum of Natural History in New York, as well as the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and other major museums.  He will also be displaying some of his rare books, and will be selling posters and his book in French, as well as a recently translated version in English.  This is a must-see exhibit.

Nonhuman Primate Tattoos: A Contest for You

Joint Meeting attendees are encouraged to enter their personal Nonhuman Primate Tattoos (NPT) into this contest benefiting primate conservation.  All interested participants will pay a small fee (per tattoo) to enter their NPT in the contest.  High-quality digital images will be sent to contest organizers for display at the meeting.  All meeting attendees will ‘judge’ tattoos by placing tickets (= votes) in the receptacles associated with each tattoo image.  The tattoos that receive the most tickets (votes) will be displayed ‘live’ (if appropriate) to win 1) recognition as the Best Nonhuman Primate Tattoo of 2016 and 2) cash prizes.  Remaining funds will be contributed to primate conservation.  Additional information and instructions to follow.
