|MY MONSTER: The Human-Animal Hybrid, published by RMIT University Gallery, Melbourne|
Cover art: Kate Clark, Gallant, 2016 (detail)
Back in 2018, the merging of animals and humans into fantastical hybrid creatures was explored extensively in My Monster: The Human-Animal Hybrid at RMIT University Gallery, Melbourne. The exhibition, which was curated by Dr. Evelyn Tsitas, ran from 29 June – 18 August.
Thanks to the recent publication of a handsome catalogue, comprising a foreword by Helen Rayment, Acting Director of RMIT Gallery, an introduction by Professor Barbara Creed and an informative essay by Tsitas, accompanied by exhaustive installation views, it’s now possible to revisit this remarkable show at will.
