Still Life: Things Devouring Time
21 Nov 2018 - 23 Mar 2019
An exhibition exploring consumer culture, sustainability and still life
This exhibition explores the notion of consumerism through the lens of historical and contemporary still life artworks.
Bringing historic Dutch still life paintings together with works by contemporary artists Simon Ward, Dawn Woolley, Caroline McCarthy and Nicole Keeley the exhibition builds on the historical exploration of consumerisation.
The contemporary still life artworks refresh the historical genre, for example, by focusing on the issue of environmental pollution. Contemporary consumer society is characterised by an overabundance of plastic - a material which features in the artworks on display.
The exhibition is co-curated by Dr Dawn Woolley (Leeds Arts University), and is generously supported by Leeds Arts University.
