When:Saturday, May 20 at 2 PM - 3:30 PM
This exhibition closed on Saturday 27th May, 2017.
Join the artists in the galleries for informal conversation about the artworks and animal themes presented in FAUNAcation and refreshments.
The exhibition aims to challenge the viewers’ perception of animals and how our actions cause them harm. While we like to find both beauty and enjoyment from animals we also need to think of how our actions affect their lives.
Some works look at how we see some animals as no more than commodities for our consumption while other works are designed to make the viewer aware of how activities such as farming and logging are destroying the habitats of animals leading to the endangerment and extinction of more and more species.
There are other works which are designed to make the viewer aware of illegal and cruel activities that we as humans are doing to animals.
Opening Thursday 4 May, 6pm
Exhibition continues until Saturday 27th May, 2017.
