People who have saved this event:


'A still life by Chardin, an exhibition organised by Maxwell Graham' is a group exhibition that brings the patient, quiet and humble spirit of 18th-Century French painter Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin to life through the work of contemporary artists.


The exhibition focuses on the mundanity of Chardin's paintings, his honest and deliberate focus on every day objects, and is sparingly filled with modest artworks by those keenly interested in the inverse proportions between captivation and pageantry – those that know and share the intense integrity of the common and remind us of the potent unknown.

With works by Audrey Barker, Hanne Darboven, Moyra Davey, Jef Geys, Dan Graham, Pati Hill, Henrik Olesen, Cameron Rowland, Maud Sulter, B. Wurtz, Trisha Donnelly, Laurie Parsons and Cathy Wilkes.
