Waddington Custot is pleased to present ‘Colour is’, a group exhibition which focuses on the wide-ranging and sometimes contradictory investigations of colour by artists from the mid-twentieth century to the present. The exhibition draws together painting and sculpture from an international group of artists who consider colour central to their practice: Etel Adnan, Josef Albers, David Annesley, David Batchelor, Anthony Caro, Ian Davenport, Paul Feeley, Sam Gilliam, Peter Halley, John Hoyland, Donald Judd, Joseph Kosuth, Kenneth Noland, Hélio Oiticica, Yuko Shiraishi, Frank Stella, Joe Tilson and William Tucker.
As the exhibition will show, the artistic investigation of colour is still a fertile ground for exploration and, whilst an immense amount has been done, the conversation is still ongoing. The exhibition is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue which includes an ongoing project by David Batchelor, a collection of thoughts on colour from notable thinkers and artists from antiquity to the presentday.
