Meadow Arts in conjunction with Cardiff University hosted a symposium to accompany their contemporary art
exhibition ‘House of Beasts’ at Attingham Park (National Trust) Shrewsbury. It explored the cultural, philosophical and ethical significance of human-animal relations as portrayed in the exhibition by bringing some of the artists involved into conversation with leading academics on human-animal relations.
The aim of the symposium was to engage with emerging sensibilities and the questioning of human/nonhuman animal relations. Its objective was to offer complementary perspectives to Darwinian and other scientific perspectives on nonhuman animals.
