"The World of Color: Selections from the Hara Museum Collection" Exhibition
This event has ended.
The world in which we live is bursting with natural and man-made colors. In our daily lives, colors assume representative and symbolic meanings. They include such globally understood colors such as the colors of traffic signals, and those with unique meanings that depend on cultural context, such as the colors red and white in Japan. How do colors appear in the works of contemporary artists? The answer is “in many ways”; for example, as a rainbow of dazzling colors, as relatively monochrome tones, or in the natural state of the raw materials used. In some artworks, colors are applied in delicate, detailed brushstrokes; in others, they are applied as flat, inorganic planes, not by brush, but by spray can or paint roller. We invite you to experience the fascinating role that colors play in contemporary art expression through specially selected works from the Hara Museum Collection.
