Boundaries shape our experience of the modern world in fundamental ways. Politically, socially, and environmentally, as our populations grow, we are constantly navigating pressures that force us as a species to redefine humanity’s place on this planet in a way that is ethical and humane for all life. The conditions that define current contemporary life, scarcity of resources, market volatility, violations of human rights, abuses of power, and environmental degradation, all demonstrate the power that boundaries have in shaping experience. The use of animals in art presents an effective counterpoint to human-centered narratives. This exhibition, featuring artists Anne Bujold, Carolyn Hopkins, Bill Rutherford and Christopher St. John, who showcase a collection of animal-themed work that offers distinct and timely perspectives on the idea of boundaries.
