Dark horse: wild beasts and curious creatures

9 Nov 2019 - 23 Feb 2020

Animals – we love them, fear them, live with them, work with them and eat them. Real and imagined, animals have been represented by artists in a variety of ways, as symbols and metaphors, as friendly or threatening beings, or as sparks for the imagination. This exhibition draws from the Art Gallery of Ballarat’s extensive collection to reveal some of the complicated ways animals have been depicted throughout history – from the prey of hunters to mythological creatures, from symbols of danger to emblems of love, from reminders of environmental threats to political caricatures.
