Opening Night: We Look at Animals Because

January 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Featuring Quratulain Butt, Khaled Hourani, Maha Maamoun Smriti Mehra, Huma Mulji, Ed Panar, Alex Sheriff, and Andrea Luka Zimmerman
Curated by Toleen Touq and Nahed Mansour

In partnership with Critical Distance, SAVAC is pleased to present We Look At Animals Because, an exhibition that gazes on animality. Through the lens of spectatorship, the show explores the shifting ways in which animals are regarded, represented and accorded meaning in post-industrial landscapes. Exhibiting photographs, video, works on paper, and sculpture, the featured artists reveal the nuanced, complicated and unexpected paradoxes that mark our relationships with cosmopolitan animals. A series of public learning events will be announced in early 2018 to complement the exhibition.
