Katonah Museum of Art is presenting Still/Live, the Rothko Room and Beatrice Scaccia: My Hope Chest thru June 27. Still/Live explores how contemporary artists working in photography, video, and new media are reimagining the genre of still life. Since ancient times, deceptively simple depictions of fruit, flowers, and every-day objects have disguised rich layers of symbolic association. The artists represented in Still/Live work from within the still life tradition, examining three themes—time, portraiture, and trompe l’oeil—with new technologies and from new perspectives. In the Learning Center, experience Still Life Studio and learn what makes a still life and why this genre continues to inspire contemporary artists. Discover an unexpected paper-built still life installation by artist Daniel Gordon. Objects will be available to set up your own still life arrangement with various art materials to create unique still life artworks. Upon arrival, young visitors will receive an interactive family guide and activity pack which will lead them through the Still/Live exhibition in the galleries.

In The Rothko Room experience two masterpieces in a room designed for individual reflection. Untitled, 1969 and Untitled (Still-life with Clock and Vase), 1938/1939 are the second and third in an ongoing series of works by Mark Rothko presented by the KMA. Rothko envisioned the creation of spiritual single work “chapels” along the sides of highways throughout the country where weary travelers could stop and contemplate one of his paintings. This vision inspired the KMA’s The Rothko Room, which offers guests the opportunity to spiritually re-charge in the presence of a single masterpiece, as Rothko intended.

Italian artist Beatrice Scaccia’s exhibition My Hope Chest, which includes a stop-motion animation and site-specific wall drawing, grew from her thoughts about a simple item of furniture: the hope-chest. Used by unmarried women to collect items in anticipation of married life, Scaccia uses the hope chest to explore the social expectations placed upon women.

Timed tickets for the Learning Center must be reserved for the same time slot as your main Museum admission. Advance timed entry tickets are required for admission to the Museum galleries and grounds. Tickets are $10; $5 for seniors.
