Beyond Human: Artist-Animal Collaborations

Ryan Hackett

Ryan Hackett’s work is included in Beyond Human at the Peabody Essex Museum, MA now through September 7, 2014.

Beyond Human: ArtistAnimal Collaborations features nearly 40 paintings, installations, photographs and audio and video recordings by artists who co-create or investigate art with live animals. From William Wegman’s iconic photography of his Weimaraners to Mary Jo McConnell’s paintings of elaborate bowerbird displays and Julia Oldham’s interpretative insect dances, Beyond Human reveals the varied ways in which contemporary artists interface with animals to create original and surprising works of art. Come and explore the nature of creativity, interact with live critters and be a part of the creative process.
