Behind Closed Doors
26th May – 28th May 2017
Behind Closed Doors is an exhibition designed to raise awareness of animal exploitation and its consequences.
It’s title refers to the way our mistreatment of animals is hidden from the general public – most of us have little idea what happens to animals behind the doors of factory farms, slaughterhouses and vivisection labs. The exhibition seeks to bring these issues into the light through video, installation, painting and other creative mediums.
For this reason, the Behind Closed Doors exhibition will be a form of activism. Vegan artists like Dana Ellyn and Sue Coe will be exhibiting their work, whilst YouTubers Earthling Ed and Vegan Geezer are among those giving talks.
The exhibition will take place at the Strand Gallery in London. It will be open from the 26th to the 28th of May, with an open event day on the 27th. On this day, there will be a variety of talks and performances, along with workshops to get involved in.
