Susan Best and Andrew McNamara, with Madeleine King

In Colour Debate

9 March 2017

The 2017 In Colour lecture series opened with a debate that will helped to find an answer to the question: is contemporary art chromophobic?

Two experts on aesthetics, Professors Susan Best (affirmative) and Andrew McNamara (negative), went head-to-head on whether colour still matters in contemporary art.

The debate was chaired by In Colour series curator, Madeleine King, and officially opened by IMA Co-Directors Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh. Official rebuttals from the affirmative and negative were followed by an ‘audience rebuttal’, with comments and questions from the floor.

The Institute of Modern Art acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which the IMA now stands, the Jagera, Yuggera, Yugarapul, and Turrbal people. We offer our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first artists of this country. In the spirit of allyship, the IMA will continue to work with First Nations people to celebrate, support, and present their immense past, present, and future contribution to artistic practice and cultural expression.
