Human/Animal/Artist: Art Inspired by Animals

20 November 2016 – 19 February 2017

Special Curator: Janine Burke

Human / Animal / Artist: Art Inspired by Animals showcased a diverse range of established and emerging contemporary artists who emulate, incorporate or refer to the works of animals, whether nest, web, hive, shelter, structure, design, trace, song or dance.  It explored how the exquisite, elaborate and sophisticated works of certain animals can have a direct, fecund and illuminating relationship with contemporary art. By showing how the human artist has been inspired by the animal’s original design or production, the exhibition acknowledged the profound shift that has taken place regarding animals in recent decades. This shift is the result of our concerns about the natural world due to climate change and its devastating impact on the earth’s many ecosystems. .
