Menagerie: Animals by Artists
Cork City, Co. Cork
4 June - 23 December 2021
Menagerie is a word that describes a diverse collection of wild animals kept in captivity for exhibition. What might we learn of animals seen through an artist's eye?

Since our ancestors first painted wild pig forms in Indonesian caves 45,500 years ago, animals have held particular significance for the human imagination.

A menagerie is a diverse collection of wild animals kept in captivity for exhibition. In the displayed works, historic and contemporary artists have captured animals in image, observing the behaviours of pets, feats of circus animals, and forms of their free-roaming cousins.

Menagerie features the work of Sarah Atkinson, Alfred Bendiner, Sylvia Cooke-Collis, Elizabeth Cope, Helen Farrell, Jan de Fouw, Lotte Funke, Patrick Hennessy, Daniel Maclise, Norah McGuinness, Joe Neeson, Gretta O'Brien, Tony O'Malley, Walter Osborne, John Platt, Nano Reid, Gail Ritchie, Liu Yong Xian, and more.

Mon - Sat 10:00 - 17:00, Sun & Bank Holidays 11:00 - 16:00.
