If you love colour as much as we do, you have to check out this brand-new exhibition that opens on Wednesday March 11 at VCUarts Qatar.
The exhibition entitled Color Lab by artists Liz Nielsen, Vanessa Donoso López, and Melanie McClintock features an interactive collection of artist works and workshops.
It explores the shifting face of colour, inviting the observer to participate in a series of chromatographic journeys through chromatography, cyanotypes, photograms and pigments of provenance, sourced and allocated to signify a sense of place.
You can participate in colour experiments that will result in a final collaborative work with unique takeaways.
The exhibition curator is McClintock, a graduate of the VCU’s home campus in Richmond, Virginia.
Nielsen’s works have been exhibited in New York, Chicago, Paris, London, Budapest, Amsterdam and Berlin. Her photographs are printed in an analog colour darkroom with handmade negatives and found light sources.
López has exhibited nationally and internationally with recent selected solo exhibitions including I shall change the way things are ordered in Dublin, No fixed color Continuum in Stockholm and many others.
McClintock’s concepts explore the ideas of time, worthiness and sense of place.
We’re looking forward to exploring the depths of colour.
Free. Until April 11. Sat-Thu 9am-5pm. The Gallery, VCUarts Qatar, Qatar Foundation, qatar.vcu.edu.
