STILLLIFE Art Fair Open Call


When the pandemic hit, the everyday was hidden under blankets, forming silhouettes of normality waiting to be revealed. After a long period of restraints, STILLLIFE feels the rebirth of an explosive energy bursting with expression.

We are a movement to celebrate the extraordinary of everyday life in everyone's life.

Our first art fair will debut in SoHo, NYC from May 28th to 30th, 2022, combining interactive displays with the vibrancy of New York City.
