Harmonies in Color: Six Contemporary Perspectives

Harmonies in Color: Six Contemporary Perspectives

Main Galleries (Floor 1)

August 24, 2019 - March 08, 2020

Color is fundamental to an understanding of our world and profoundly affects our daily lives. Although visible color constitutes only a small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, it is complex and endlessly fascinating to artists and scientists alike. Harmonies in Color explores the perception of color and brings together the work of six renowned colorists: Gabriele Evertz, Irene Mamiye, Pard Morrison, Jen Pack, Robert Swain, and Sanford Wurmfeld. 

The exhibition includes paintings, photographs, sculptures, and “thread works,” and makes reference to major milestones in the scientific investigation of color, color themes and theories, and color as a subject in art. The artists featured in the exhibition work with different aesthetic media and are pursuing the investigation of color from different perspectives; but, all are united in their interest in the sensory experience of color.

Sound Is An Invisible Color is a companion exhibition to Harmonies in Color and will feature the work of Christopher Janney on the second floor of the Main Galleries.
