Ordinary Objects / Wild Things

Exhibition Website

Dec 15 2018 - Jun 23 2019

Since the seventeenth century, the still-life genre has attracted artists keen to describe in visual terms the ordinary objects of everyday life. Early in the genre’s history, verisimilitude was a primary concern in assessing the still life’s success, but in today’s artistic practice, it is no longer a categorical requirement. 

Over the past fifty years, artists from a broad range of stylistic perspectives have approached and expanded the genre; the artworks selected for Ordinary Objects / Wild Things exemplify this diversity.
