5000 years of color

A Cultural History of Color presents a history of 5000 years of color in western culture. The work examines how color has been perceived, developed, produced and traded, and how it has been used in all aspects of performance– from the political to the religious to the artistic– and how it shapes all we see, from food and nature to interiors and architecture, to objects and art, to fashion and adornment, to the color of the naked human body, and to the way our minds work and our languages are created.
