Ideas & Inspiration: Animals & Art

Recommended for AS Art & Design and equivalent.

Capacity: 20 places

Artists have long used animals for inspiration, from the first recorded drawings in the caves of Chauvert thirty-two thousand years ago right up to the current day. This session will explore how contemporary artists use animals in a diverse way in their artworks taking our Interspecies exhibition as a starting point. The session will include an in-depth tour of the exhibition and an illuminating talk exploring the practices of a variety of related artists work such as Maurizio Cattelan, Tessa Farmer and Mark Dion. Students will then have the opportunity to start making a piece of artwork inspired by one of Andrew Bracey’s pieces from his Freianlage series.

Led by Andrew Bracey, artist and lecturer at the University of Lincoln.
