Beasts of Burden Exhibition

I curate and join 18 artists of the evolving exhibition BEASTSOFBURDEN. Working in diverse media the artists include animals from their perspectives. From spirit to science, entertainment to psychology, metaphoric, allegoric or futuristic, the artists play with what they find intriguing about animals. As a group, we consider our complicated connections to these creatures and the many ways they are entwined into our lives and psyches.
