This show featured nine artists whose work depicts animals in one form or another. With this exhibition, Soo VAC displayed a wide range of artists and media, in an attempt to gain insight into the aesthetic and cultural phenomenon of the animal in contemporary art. Through surveying a number of artists working with animal imagery or themes, Soo VAC investigated questions such as, Why are animals a significant theme in contemporary art? What function does the animal serve for the artist? How does the viewer relate to animals in art through fear and empathy.
