CALL for ENTRIES:
Still Life 2.0
from N.Y. Photo Curator
ELIGIBILITY: Open to all artists
THEME: Still Life 2.0. “From the Greco-Roman art, mostly depicting offerings for the gods, to the Dutch masters of the 16th and 17th centuries, to the vanitas and, later on, to impressionism and cubism, still lifes have always been providing keys to understanding cultures of different eras and regions, as well as the psyche of each individual artist. Forget about fruits and flowers or bowls and skulls. Or not. Introduce us to your world by arranging and displaying your updated version of still life. Invite us into your fears, desires, dreams and attachments. Show us your treasured collections or simply what you’re hoarding
