Caged and Consumed - Amazing Exhibition in Melbourne!

Caged and Consumed - Amazing Exhibition in Melbourne!

I don't know about you, but I dig art with a message - something that challenges people to think, and maybe even look at the world from a new perspective. And when the topic is animals... well all the better!

Right now, the Obscura Gallery, in St Kilda, Melbourne is hosting just such an exhibition of photography. The very talented Kelly Hussey-Smith and Erin Burnett have contributed to create the exhibition Caged and Consumed - exploring the relationship between humans and other animals and particularly how they are used for entertainment and food. Check out these great photos from the exhibition:

Powerful pics, aren't they! If you live in Melbourne and want to see the rest of these stunning images, then hurry down to Obscura Gallery, First Floor, 285 Carlisle St, East St Kilda. The exhibition has only a couple of weeks left.

What did you think of the photos? Got any artists you really admire? Leave a comment.

Does anyone mind if I use those images for my Live Export project at school? We have to choose an environmental/animal right/human right issue to research and present. Those would be very useful.

Banksy's art pieces on animal exploitation are really inspiring. These photos are really moving.

Visual Art is very powerful and thank goodness people are using imagery of animals with powerful titles to get people thinking and perhaps to even change their consciousness to animals.
As an Art Teacher, I know the influence of visual images.

For those of you who really want to understand watch
"Earthlings", the most powerful documentary ever!
