Join us to celebrate the opening of Still Life: Things Devouring Time.
This exhibition explores consumer culture and social, environmental and sustainability issues relevant today. It brings together contemporary still life artwork and historic Dutch still life paintings to look at things made from non-biodegradable materials and considers people’s inclination to collect possessions. It explores how these behaviours contradict the concept of "tempus edax rerum" – time as devourer of all things.
The exhibition is co-curated by Dr Dawn Woolley (Leeds Arts University), and is generously supported by Leeds Arts University.
