This event has ended.

Still Big is a group exhibition inspired by 17th century Dutch Still-Life paintings. These works broke away from the use of religious subject matter to depict secular objects like flowers, food, and bones in domestic interiors. These paintings explored quotidian reality as well as larger themes of life and mortality.

In Still Big, paintings, photos and sculptures are arranged on or around tables designed by NY based furniture designers. These contemporary tableaus employ surprising juxtapositions to evoke erotic, gustatory and optical pleasures as well as poignant allusions to human frailty.

Artists: Priscilla Fusco, Ethan Greenbaum, Kira Nam Greene, Eric Hibit, Myeongsoo Kim, John Newman, Sarah Peters, Chelsey Pettyjohn, Adrianne Rubenstein, Roger White, B. Wurtz, Crys Yin.

Designers: ERICKSON AESTHETICS, Miduny, Moving Mountains, PHAEDO.

Presented by TSA New York, Curated by Sun You.
