Colour Clash

I'm taking part in another Friday Salon talk at the ICA at 3pm on the 4th April 2014.

"This Salon takes Tom Hudson's experimental colour teaching at Cardiff College of Art in the 1950s and Richard Hamilton's investigation into colour within his teaching of Basic Design during his time at Newcastle University as a starting point, to explore the role of colour in contemporary art practice today.
Through exploring themes of perception and illusion the Salon seeks to question what implications the ranges of traditional and non-traditional media used by contemporary artists have for understanding the selection and specification of coloured materials, and will asses how a new generation of artists are investigating colour in their work through experimentation with technology.
Speakers include Esther Leslie (Chair), Adham Faramawy, Rhys Coren and Richard Healy."
