Nature Morte: Contemporary Artists Reinvigorate the Still Life

Konsthallen- Bohusläns museum, Sweden
7 May - 28 August 2016
 

Curated by Michael Petry & Roberto Ekholm 
Musuem curator: Agneta von Zeipel

 

Nature Morte – the exhibition – is based on Michael Petry’s recent book of the same name for Thames & Hudson. It brings together historic still-life paintings and contemporary art works that use the language of the past for modern concerns. The show seeks to illustrate how leading artists of the 21st century are reinvigorating the still life, a genre previously synonymous with the sixteenth- and seventeenth century Old Masters. The show will exhibit works from the traditional topics of the still-life: flora, fauna, the domestic object, food and vanitas.
