Featuring the works of 27 artists from The Artists Village (TAV), STILL LIFE revisits the long-established genre of still life in contemporary art in the context of today’s art canon and culture. While ideas and materials associated with still life have evolved over periods and art movements, still life as a subject matter remains fascinating and challenging. The artists examine and explore the relevance and contexts between objects and the world by giving voices to diverse interpretations of still life within their interdisciplinary practices. TAV proudly marks its 30th year with this hallmark exhibition, a 2-day Artist-in-Residence programme with students from the NAFA's Fine Art programme and a series of performances at the closing of the exhibition. As one of Singapore's foremost artist collective, TAV continues to initiate conversations through the production and dialogue of art.
