This talk is about the relational qualities of colours. Colours as palettes—those marauding squads of socially and culturally recognised hues—which get what they need by working together.
Diana Young discussed some palettes of colour in landscapes, art works and exhibitions to understand what it is colours can do together. This lecture was officially opened by IMA Senior Manager, Madeleine King.
The IMA is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, the Australian Government through Australia Council for the Arts, and the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian Federal, State, and Territory Governments. The IMA is a member of Contemporary Art Organisations Australia.
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.
