THE INSTITUTE OF CRITICAL ZOOLOGISTS
EXHIBITION: Friday 27 April — Sunday 17 June 2012
Chapter Gallery has worked in collaboration with the ICZ to present its first UK survey exhibition that interrogates the boundaries between the seen and the unseenm exploring methods of allegorical representation and interpretation.
In March 2012, Zhao Renhui (an artist who works closely with the ICZ) undertook a residency at the National Museum Cardiff that has informed part of the research for this exhibition. An installation by the artist is open in the Natural History Galleries at the Museum between 13 March and 17 June 2012.
This exhibition is curated by Lauren Jury and Helen Warburton.
