Beasts

18 December 2015 – 30 April 2017

A generous, multimedia selection of animal-themed works, both lively and thoughtful.

Human beings share this amazing planet with a vast array of other creatures. We’ve lived alongside animals for thousands of years, domesticating some for our benefit; others have been impossible to tame. Artists’ depictions of animals can offer interesting ways of seeing and thinking about the world. Many of these works reflect on the human condition, suggesting that people, perhaps, are among the cleverest, and the strangest, of the beasts.
