Shapes of Color

July 28 - September 10, 2017

opening Friday July 28, 17.00 hrs

The Galerie VIVID Summer exhibition showcases a broad variety of the use of color in design, art and archtecture and travels through the 20th century to today.
Highlights are a Mies van der Rohe M10 chair with red tubes that was in the Café-part of the Berliner Bauaustellung in 1931. An End Table (1923) by Gerrit Rietveld Rietveld with only De Stijl movement colors Red Yellow and Blue. Wim Crouwel used basic print colors for the Rauschenberg poster he designed in 1968. Two new and unique Totems (2016) by Richard Woods have his colorful iconic motives that are infused with a neo-Pop aesthetic.
Thomas Trum, born in 1989, experiments with transparant fields of color in which traces of the process are still visible. For the 'Shapes of Color' exhibition he will make a mural that will intergrate works by other artists and designers....
