Object Romance: Contemporary Approaches to Still Life

April 27, 2016 to August 7, 2016

Traditionally considered a lesser genre compared to others such as history and landscape painting, still life grew in prominence in the 20th century. Rather than promote the interests of an elite class, 20th-century still lifes reflect the individual histories and creative ambitions of their makers. With the rise of modernism and consumer culture, artists depicted unconventional objects such as mass-produced goods and broadly experimented with their methods of representation, turning the aged genre into a vital means of contemporary expression.

Come join us for a free screening of Pink Floyd’s The Wall. “In this visual riff on Pink Floyd’s album “The Wall,” successful but drugged-out musician Pink (Bob Geldof) is looking back on his isolated childhood from the confines of a Los Angeles hotel room. Through a swirl of flashbacks and chemical-induced hallucinations, Pink recalls his lonely upbringing, during which he built a symbolic wall to the world as he coped with the death of his father (James Laurenson) and the overbearing ways of his mother (Christine Hargreaves).” Bring your favorite movie snack and show up early for our $2.50 anything Happy Hour from 6pm-9pm and our special of the night is $2.50 any beer. 21+ event. VJ Todzilla will be playing your favorite 80’s music videos and requests right after.
