Run with the Wolves

Run with the Wolves explores the fascination that animals hold for many contemporary artists. A historical motif that can be traced back to the earliest artworks of humans, animals still manage to mystify and inspire artists from every generation. The exhibition doesn’t put forth a specific philosophical lens regarding animals, rather it shows many diverse practices that engage with animals and themes of nature as the central focus of an artist’s work.
