Featuring work by the editors, Nava Atlas, Sunaura Taylor, Yvette Watt, Angela Singer, Hester Jones, Suzy Gonzalez, Renee Lauzon, Olaitan Callender- Scott, Patricia Denys, Maria Lux, and Lynn Mowson, The Art of the Animal explores contemporary women artists’ engagement with how women and animals are depicted and treated. The book was inspired by The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist Vegetarian Critical Theory by Carol J. Adams, who has written an afterword. The foreword is by Keri Cronin, Associate Professor in the Visual Arts Department at Brock University, Canada. Carolyn Merino Mullin, director of the Museum of Animals and Society in Los Angeles, for which the book serves as a catalogue for an exhibition of the artists’ work in Fall 2015, has also contributed an essay.

Kathryn Eddy is a multidisciplinary artist who uses painting, drawing, collage, photography, sculpture, and immersive sound installation to explore the complexities of the human / more than human relationship.
