A new exhibit entitled “The Sexual Politics of Meat” (SPOM) will debut Saturday at The Animal Museum in Los Angeles. Inspired by vegan activist Carol Adams’ book of the same name, the exhibit will showcase art from 14 contemporary female artists that explores the connection between the oppression of women and animals. “Through their work,” the exhibit description states, “the artists of SPOM examine intersecting oppressions based on gender, race, and species, exploring what objectification means to them personally, politically, and poetically.” The broader aim of the exhibit is to answer the question, “How does someone become something?” The Animal Museum is a collaboration between animal-rights activists Carolyn Merino Mullin and Ellen Lavinthal, who kicked off last year’s grand opening with the humorous yet illuminating “Crazy Cat Ladies” exhibit.
