Are animals our friends or our enemies? Are we ourselves animals or are animals alien to us? Although humans have defined themselves through their "superiority" to animals, we admire them, love them, and have often turned them into myth, allegory, or even divinity. Scientists have long studied animals and learned from their abilities. Artists have always been enthralled by the beauty, power, and strangeness of animals, and, at the same time, their similarity to humans. Animals help us to explain our humanity, as they are seen as representing either the demon or the deity within us. In both science and myth, the human and the animal blend and separate. This exhibition will feature work by Pablo Picasso, Marc Chagall, Albrecht Dürer, Claude Lorrain, Eugène Delacroix, Jacques Lipchitz, Weegee, Sam Abell, and many others in a variety of media that engage these issues and more.
