A colourific exhibition to open in Melbourne next Autumn
NGV Australia will present a colourific exhibition next Autumn, representing pattern trends in contemporary art.
The Kaleidoscopic Turn, celebrates artists using colour, light, sound, movement, space, as well as various optical and kinetic effects, pulling together pieces from NGV's current collections as well as newly acquired artworks.
Stemming from a time rife with physadelic colour and pattern, The Kaleidoscope Turn features artists that have experimented with a range of mediums from the 1960s through to today.
Various artistic legacies will be represented in The Kaleidoscope Turn, covering 20th century Op art to colourfield painting, offering a range of multi-sensory experiences, installations, sculptures, video art, works on paper and painting in diverse forms.
Artists featured in the exhibition include: Marta Boto, Eugene Carchesio, David Harley, Melinda Harper, Matt Hinkley, Zilvinas Kempinas, David McDiarmid, Anne-Marie May, Tomislav Nikolic, Bridget Riley, Sandra Selig and Jesus Soto among others.
Your upcoming exhibit--pattern trends in contemporary art--looks like fun. I'll definitely be attending.
On a somewhat similar theme (perhaps): I'd be tickled pink if sometime you had an exhibit of kinetic sculpture. Mobiles, certainly, but other types of kinetic sculpture as well. Is something like this possible?
