ANIMAL FARM. Taking Animal Conscience.
OPENING – 25th September – 20.00h
An exhibition* that under the gaze of 11 artists shows different perspectives on the animal world. Through them we would like to reflect on the problems of the extinction of species, the suffering of confinement, the treatment of greyhounds, animal identities applied to human beings and vice versa, make them protagonists of illustrations, or simply contemplate the beauty based on them.
A wide range of styles, where we face criticism and praise to some living beings with whom we live, sometimes with admiration, care and affection, and other with persecution, pain and extermination.
* Charitable exhibition. A % of the sales will be donated to the foundation Chimpatía (Rainfer) and to the sanctuary Wings of Heart.
