COLOUR MUSIC

CM_title_web_largeCOLOUR MUSIC brings together the work of visual artists who speculate on connections between pictorial form and pitch, harmony, movement and musical notation.

A core of historical works by Roy de Maistre, Ludwig Hirschfeld-Mack, Jozef Stanislaus Ostoja-Kotkowski and Frank Hinder provides the framework for contemporary artists who are also engaged with the rapport between music and the visual arts.

Extended forms of painting using light, performance, kinetics and musical collaborations continues the preoccupation with synaesthesia that haunted the modernist project.

Video/film works from the 1980s, an immersive installation by Botborg, painted ‘compositions’ by John Aslanidis, John Nixon, David Sequeira and Cathy Blanchflower and collaborative performances round out this exhibition curated by Tony Oates.
