Take a Trip Through the Animal World at Manhattan’s New Museum

Rachel Berwick (Professor, Glass) has contributed to a program investigating the scientific, literary and cultural significance of various animals through a series of brief presentations, films, sound recordings, readings and more.

Spiders, parrots, songbirds, chickens, lobsters, king crabs, dogs, chimps, pigs, seals, orangutans – these are only a few inhabitants of the menagerie that appears in Rosemarie Trockel’s work. For this event in association with the artist’s exhibition “A Cosmos” at the New Museum, Cabinet invites visitors to take a trip through the animal world inspired by J.B.S. Haldane’s seminal 1920s essay “On Being the Right Size.”
