Nature Morte: Contemporary Artists Reinvigorate the Still Life is a MOCA touring exhibition based on Michael Petry’s recent book for Thames & Hudson. It brings together historic still-life paintings and contemporary art works that seek to 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.
Curated by Michael Petry, Roberto Ekholm & Malgorzata Santarek
