Robert Wiesenberger, associate curator of contemporary projects, discusses Lin May Saeed's unique approach to human-animal relations and the urgency of these issues today.
On the occasion of her first museum solo exhibition, this catalogue illustrates Lin May Saeed’s drawings, paintings, and sculptures in materials such as paper, steel, and polystyrene foam. It includes two interpretive essays on the artist, Saeed’s own writings, and a previously untranslated text on animality and otherness.
