Beasts Like Me: Feminism and Fantasy presents works investigating animals, anthropomorphism, and the dance between representations of self and animalistic notions. It looks at the way women’s bodies are politicized and how artists incorporate the body, animals, and beasts into their work. Bodies morph and undergo transformation, part human and part beast in subversive fictionalized imagery. The works elucidate the transformative effect of fantasy, revealing mythical imagery of animals, and imagined beasts in a new light of empowerment. The exhibition encompasses painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, installation, and film.
