In January 2015, the Yale School of Art’s 32 Edgewood Gallery presented Side Show, an exhibition about the intersection of fine art and the historical American popular entertainment world of the side show – in which the bodily display of the abnormal, human or animal, would be the focus of the event. Issues of race, ethnicity, gender and disability will be considered.
