Still Life

Feb 17, 2015

Exhibition Dates: April 8 – April 25, 2015
Curated By: Jennie Lennick

Root Division invites artists working in all media to submit work for an exhibition entitled Still Life.

Still Life is an exhibition that embraces the tradition of still life, a subject matter which represents the underrepresented by highlighting the mundane. The genre is so benign that the known form of the still life becomes radically contemporary. Focus will be made on artworks that call attention to overlooked artifacts from private and public histories. The exhibition will consist of artists creating artworks directly referencing the still life conceptually and formally with special focus on works that feature food and/or dining.

Still Life is being presented in tandem with Root Division’s annual fundraiser TASTE 2015.

Artists may submit up to four works for review.
Deadline for Submission: Tuesday, February 17, 2015
