‘Animals & Us’ was a major exhibition at Margate’s Turner Contemporary exploring artists’ reflections on the relationship between humans and other animals. At a time when scientists warn that humans may be causing the sixth mass extinction on earth; how do we see and relate to other animals? Focusing on contemporary and 20th century artists and including historical artworks and artefacts ‘Animals & Us’ explores our lives and encounters with animals, and how these have been reflected in art.
