Guildhall Art Gallery (off Gresham Street)

Confront what it means to be human.

Explore the transience of time and the problem of mortality as the 16th-century tradition of still life meets modern art in Guildhall Art Gallery’s new exhibition Nature Morte. Go beyond the two-dimensional as 100 works of art on the themes of flora, fauna, the domestic object, food and vanitas, invite you to pause and look anew at the human condition.

Featuring work by major international contemporary artists including Michael Craig-Martin and Gabriel Orozco, as well as art from London-based artists and the City’s own historic collection.

The exhibition has been brought together by MOCA, London, in partnership with Guildhall Art Gallery.

Tickets can be purchased from Guildhall Art Gallery or from the City Information Centre. Booking not required.
