(London, UK) The exhibition explores how histories of slavery and colonialism have been shaped by human attraction to particular colours, tastes, textures and drugs. Focusing on how the desire to wear, ingest or become enraptured by certain substances preceded the will to trade them as commercial goods, A Body Reduced to Brilliant Colour traces the materialist urges at the root of colonial violence.
(New York, USA) RU artist Antoine Turillon proposes a projection based on a large archive of slides that Ad Reinhardt made during various travels depicting “wonders of the world”.
