“Pizza Dog is a small dog that loves pizza, and can never stop ordering it. Some say that Pizza Dog was born with a pizza in his hand.”

On October 18, Roots & Culture will host the Pizza Dog Monster Explosion, celebrating one year of Pizza Dog’s daily GIF-of-the-day animations. The evening’s program features an exquisite pizza-corpse workshop and a pizza party, and of course lots and lots of Pizza Dog animation. Attendees are encouraged to wear pizza or monster-themed attire.

Pizza Dog is the name given to work that is created using a specific type of exquisite corpse. Since the first Pizza Dog comics in 2006, the original collective has expanded the ideas behind their comics creation into the area of performance, collaborative experimental DJ’ing, pizza parties, and live interactive animation. Pizza Dog is an invitation to participate in an attempt to destroy the ego and celebrate the zeitgeist using mindless surrealist techniques. We can only truly learn from what we initially consider to be absurd.

Programming at Roots & Culture is funded by grants from The City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, The Gaylord & Dorothy Donnelly Foundation, and The Illinois Arts Council, an Agency of the State of Illinois.
