International Colour Day | DFZ Colour Connections

Date : February 20, 2024

Honored and excited to join Dr. Alexandra Loske on International Colour Day 21 March 2024.

Thanks to the German Colour Association for the invitation.  


Shades of HERstory: Exploring Women’s Influence on Colour Through History
You are warmly invited to join the German Colour Association, Deutsches Farbenzentrum e.V. (DFZ), for an online talk on International Colour Day, Thursday, 21 March 2024. Save the date!
The DFZ is delighted to offer a new format for this colour conversation: a joint presentation by German-British museum curator and author Dr. Alexandra Loske (who is also a new DFZ board member for Colour Theory and Colour Literature) and US-American artist Brece Honeycutt. The theme will be “Women and Colour”. Dr. Alexandra Loske is Curator of the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, England, and has recently published a monograph on the English artist Mary Gartside, who was the first woman who published a colour theory, five years before Goethe’s Doctrine of Colours. Her hand-painted illustrations for her book show a high degree of abstraction, making her a pioneer in the field. Artist Brece Honeycutt frequently references historical sources and has made colour and materiality a focus of her work, with Gartside being one of her inspirations. The presentation will begin at 8pm CET and will be in English. Each speaker will talk for around 30 to 40 minutes, followed by a Q&A session. Questions can be asked in English or German.

Causality. When disparate elements are combined or random materials are stacked, when unlikely shapes are forged or incongruent designs are assembled, whether situationally mounted or unconventionally installed, this mishmashing, this mixed-amalgamation incites a new visual equilibrium. Our contemporary world is made up of this dynamism—an unceasing revel of cause and effect. Artists who define this make up this exhibition.

Artists: Paula Barr, Sarah Bednarek, Ali Della Bitta, Daniel John Gadd, Brece Honeycutt, Ellen Letcher, Trevor King, Elizabeth Murray, Judy Pfaff, Wade Schaming, Christopher Vazquez, Greg Wall
