Wild Side: the animal in art

December 2014 – September 2015

Our partnership touring exhibition project Wild Side: the animal in art was on display at Western Plains Cultural Centre, Dubbo, until late 2015. Co-curated by LMCAG's Meryl Ryan and WPCC's Kent Buchanan, the exhibition considered humankind's relationship with the greater animal kingdom. Included were works from both galleries' collections, alongside loans from some of Australia's finest contemporary artists.
