Nature Morte
Contemporary artists reinvigorate the Still-Life tradition

The exhibition is organized as a cooperative project between the Four Domes Pavilion, a branch of the National Museum in Wrocław, and MOCA London.

The exhibition tries to find answers to the following questions: how the still-life motive evolved in art? What’s the attitude of contemporary artists towards this tradition and how it’s being interpreted by them?
