​Re-framing the Wild explores the relationships between humans, animals and artworks from 1750 to 1950, drawing on Wolverhampton’s collections of animal paintings, photography, hunting traps, and decorative art objects.


It provides historical background to the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition and asks: ‘How have humans shaped understandings of the wild through artworks and how have animals contributed towards artworks?’

The exhibition is co-curated with staff from the University of Birmingham’s  Department of Art History, Curating and Visual Studies.​
