Mezzanine Galleries: Be Still: Examining Still Life in the MCMA Permanent Collection
In the Mezzanine Galleries, MCMA presents an exhibition of still life painting, photography, and sculpture in the Permanent Collection. Many pieces on display serve to represent still life artwork in its most traditional form; however, others challenge typical conventions. Each piece is a momentary representation of objects in everyday life, evoking the intimate scenes being frozen in time.
