The Nevada Museum of Art presents Late Harvest, a group exhibition that juxtaposes contemporary art made with taxidermy with historically significant wildlife paintings, resulting in intriguing parallels and startling aesthetic contrasts. Among the 37 participating artists is Dutch artist duo Idiots (Afke Golsteijn and Floris Bakker), Damien Hirst, Andrew Zuckerman and Berlinde de Bruyckere. Love Harvest is on view from September 27 until January 18.

The exhibition seeks to simultaneously confirm—through historically-significant wildlife paintings—and subvert—through contemporary art and photography—viewers’ preconceptions of the place of animals in culture. An illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.

Late Harvest is organized by the Nevada Museum of Art in consultation with the National Museum of Wildlife Art. The exhibition is curated by JoAnne Northrup, Director of Contemporary Art Initiatives, together with consulting curator Adam Duncan Harris, Ph.D., Petersen Curator of Art & Research, National Museum of Wildlife Art.
