MOPA In Focus: Picturing the Still Life in Photography
What image comes to mind when you see the word ‘still life’? For many, it’s likely to be a bowl of fruit or a classic European painting. However, photography allows us to push these old-school boundaries, providing new perspectives on the everyday objects around us.
Whether it’s the beauty of a single leaf or an arrangement of cherished objects, tune in tomorrow for a live presentation to explore this theme through the artists in MOPA’s collection, and for a special highlight of the work of Hong Lei, a contemporary Chinese photographer featured in MOPA’s current exhibition Out of the Shadows.
