ANIMAL ART

An examination into issues of our shared environment.

Changes in our shared environment, rising rates of extinction, new conceptions of animal rights and genetically informed ideas about the increasingly narrow distinction between the human and animal kingdoms are all issues that have led to the urgency and passion that informed the artists’ work in Animal Art.

What do we see when we look at animals? What is it like to be an animal? Artists in this exhibit explore how and why animals excite the human imagination.

Featured October 2009 – September 2011.
