‘Life Is Still Life’ presents an exciting selection of modern and contemporary works by women artists in the genre of still life. Throughout the history of art, still life has been denigrated and dismissed, largely because of its associations with women and the home. Despite this, still life has been the site of radical experiments with form and meaning and a way for artists to explore broad questions about life, death, gender and the self.
