Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet; this exhibition is a maximalist tribute to colour. The artists featured in ROYGBIV are interested in colour’s ability to alter mood, change behaviour, or simply transform space. Colours can conjure joy and playfulness, they can shape social spaces and can even be employed for social control. The projects in ROYGBIV reveal a relationship between colour, architectural form, the inner and outer spaces they can create and the resulting effects on the human body.
The subtle and not so subtle shifts and changes in colour across ROYGBIV are meant to not only engage you but to change you.
This exhibition is organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Catherine Crowston and Lindsey Sharman. Presented as part of the Poole Center of Design.
