Animals Among Us
Opening Reception, April 5, 4:15-6 p.m.
Exhibition: April 5 – June 30, 2013,
Animals Among Us takes as its premise that we define, structure, and connect with the animal realm in a wide, complex network of relationships that inform our understanding of ourselves as humans. Developed by 10 student curators in the seminar “Captured Creatures” (Fall 2012), the exhibition uses works of art and other artifacts from Grinnell College collections to unpack the connections between humans and animals, and to address—or call into question--the binaries we often think about in relation with animals (wild/domestic, biological/cultural, self/other, human/animal). Drawing on their majors in anthropology, art, biology, history, and literature, the 3rd and 4th year students selected the art, designed the exhibition, shaped its themes, and wrote a catalog exploring our lives among the other animals.
