This year marks the bicentennial of the first edition of Frankenstein, published when Shelley was only 20 years old. The genre-defining classic has inspired countless adaptations and has strongly influenced Piccinini's practice. Discover the themes shared by the novel and the exhibition 'Curious Affection', from the relationship between humanity and the natural world, and the social and moral impact of scientific research, genetics and biotechnology on people, animals and our planet.

Autumn book club titles selected by Patricia Piccinini as highlighting key themes in her exhibition 'Patricia Piccinini: Curious Affection'.
