Finding the Animal
How have depictions of animals in Western art changed through time, and what might this tell us about the evolving relationship between the human and natural world? This lecture explores the changing concept of both wildness and society and how this has impacted on the ways in which we depict animals.
Talita Jenman is an artist and art historian who previously ran the Arts and Culture Programme at ZSL London Zoo.
