FAN MAIL is the third exhibition in D | Vision, a series of exhibitions that will explore the relationship between social, cultural or political division and artistic vision. RedLine would like to thank the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation, Colorado Creative Industries, Denver Arts & Venues, Lynda M. Goldstein Foundation, Hemera Foundation, The David & Laura Merage Foundation, The Louise Merage Foundation, The Olson-Vander Heyden Foundation, the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and our supporters and members for making this program year possible.
In this exhibit, fundamental connections are explored between other living creatures and our comprehension of existences beyond ourselves. Contributors from various fields offer their unique perspectives through images, humor, and performative collaborations with animals. This collection of work considers other life forms through a multi-species lens informed by experimentation, appreciation and curiosity.
Artists featured in Not Even Human: Bradley Benedetti, Coleman Mummery, Colin Ward, Cows, Jessica Langley, Justin Beard, Margaret Neumann, Neal Agarwal, Porscha’ Danielle, Sarah Gamble, Tucker Marder/Sharks
Not Even Human runs concurrently with esteemed artist Margaret Neumann's retrospective in RedLine's Exhibition Hall through December 9th, 2018. We invite you to join us for the joint receptions and to bring along your animal companions (if they are comfortable in a large group of people).

Few living artists in Colorado can claim the widespread influence and impact that Margaret Neumann has had on the art-practice of generations of artists – both those who have already been critically and institutionally embraced as well as a cohort of younger, aspiring artists, many of whom have never met her but whose work is clearly indebted to Neumann’s enduring imprint. Neumann has achieved a near mythic stature and she has served as mentor, teacher, guide and inspiration to countless artists in Colorado and the surrounding region.
ArtCorps Mentoring is a year-long mentorship between community artists and youth at Whittier School, and a six week pilot mentorship at Manual High School. Both are under-resourced neighborhood schools in Five Points. Through a one-on-one mentorship, students explore the arts and design a social engagement project related to their lives and communities. In collaboration with their mentor, students act as socially engaged artists and learn to approach life with the inquiring mind of an artist.
