Color and Production: From the Atom to the Void

Collective Design, the New-York-based design fair is partnering with Frieze New York in presenting an exhibition, entitled Color and Production: From the Atom to the Void, curated by London based Libby Sellers. Now, that the Frieze got cancelled, the show will launch tomorrow as a part of the digital platform Frieze Viewing Room, which will air between May 8–15.
 
Color and Production will explore how technological developments have influenced the use of color within the fields of art and design, from pre industrial times to today. It will trace the evolving materials and production methods that have enabled, and at times spurred, new aesthetic possibilities in color. The exhibition also looks to contemporary makers who are turning to alternative, natural sources in their practice. It will feature furniture, fiber art, and objects alongside painting and sculpture.
 
Among the artists included in the show: Josef Albers, Dan Flavin, Martino Gamper, Sheila Hicks, Hella Jongerius, Joseph Kosuth, Bertrand Lavier, John McCracken, Bruno Munari, Nathalie Du Pasquier and Gaetano Pesce, to name a few. Collective Design will also present pieces straight from the studios of Tanya Aguaniga, Studio Formafantasma, Jochen Holz, Cody Hoyt, Sabine Marcellis, and James Welling. To view, visit Frieze Viewing Room.
