Chinese-Language Tour: Color and Affect in Contemporary Art

April 17, 2022
2:30 pm

Join student educator Yue Dai, PhD student in the Department of Art History & Archaeology in Arts & Sciences, for a tour featuring contemporary art in the Museum’s permanent collection galleries. This tour will explore different approaches to color in paintings, sculptures, and a large-scale installation by artists from the United States, Germany, and Jamaica, whose works alternately deploy a variety of rich colors or a conservatively narrow color palette, resulting in different visual and emotional effects.

Free and open to the public.

Please arrive at least fifteen minutes before the start of the tour. Our tours can accommodate groups of twenty, but we encourage you to check in at the Welcome Desk to secure your place.


来跟艺术史暨考古学系博士生戴悦一起探索 Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum 常设展览中的当代艺术。在本次导览中,我们将会一同欣赏来自美国、德国和牙买加艺术家的绘画、雕塑和大型装置作品,涉及知名抽象表现主义艺术家杰克逊·波洛克和极简主义艺术家安妮·特鲁伊特。从色彩运用的角度来看,这些作品或使用了大量丰富的颜色,或保守地选择了单一色彩、色系,并由此引发了不同的视觉感受和情感体验。我们将一起探索色彩和情感在当代艺术中的奇妙关系。



Support for this program is provided by Women and the Kemper.
