Art of the Animal

I’m really excited to be included in The Art of the Animal: 14 Women Artists Explore The Sexual Politics of Meat– which accompanies an exhibition at The Animal Museum, in LA in 2017.  The book has been printed and is available to purchase from Lantern Booksartanimal_frontcover

I am honored, of course, that “The Art of the Animal: 14 Women Artists Explore The Sexual Politics of Meat” has been conceived and that 14 women whom I admire greatly are a part of this project. More importantly, I am excited to be a part of a project that at its heart is about artists and their art and how as artists they engage with theory, embodiment, and non-anthropocentric vision!!” – Carol Adams

The Art of the Animal is a visually stunning and intellectually stirring investigation of the female and animal body from a multitude of perspectives. Each artist reflects on her work, placing it within the context of their experiences as women, activists, and embodied beings. The artists include Nava Atlas, Sunaura Taylor, Hester Jones, Patricia Denys, Suzy Gonzalez, Maria Lux, Olaitan Callender-Scott, Renee Lauzon, Angela Singer, Lynn Mowson, Yvette Watt, L.A. Watson, Janell O’Rourke, and Kathryn Eddy. In addition, Dr. Keri Cronin, a leading cultural historian from Brock University, has written the foreword; Carol J. Adams herself has composed an afterword; and National Museum of Animals and Society founder and director, Carolyn Mullin has contributed an essay.
