Nature Morte at Guildhall Art Gallery

Guildhall Art Gallery presents an exhibition that confronts what it means to be human.

7 September 2017 – 2 April 2018 | Visit website

Explore the transience of time and the problem of mortality as the 16th-century tradition of still life meets modern art in Guildhall Art Gallery’s new exhibition Nature Morte.
 
Go beyond the two-dimensional as 100 works of art on the themes of flora, fauna, the domestic object, food and vanitas, invite you to pause and look anew at the human condition. Featuring work by major international contemporary artists including Michael Craig-Martin and Gabriel Orozco, as well as art from London-based artists and the City’s own historic collection.
 
Nature Morte runs at the Guildhall Art Gallery from 7 September 2017 – 2 April 2018. More information can be found here
