Colour Chart at the Tate

At a time of unprecedented interest in the role of colour in graphic design, fashion and interior design, Tate Liverpool will be presenting Colour Chart: Reinventing Colour, 1950 to Today. Colour Chart celebrates a paradox: the beauty that occurs when contemporary artists assign colour decisions to change, readymade sources or arbitrary systems.This exhibition looks at the moment in twentieth-century art, when a collective of artists began to perceive colour as 'readymade' rather than as scientific or expressive.

This is the first major exhibition devoted to the significance of colour in contemporary art and will include works by Ellsworth Kelly, Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, Frank Stella, Yves Klein, Richard Serra, John Baldessari, Dan Flavin, Damien Hirst, David Batchelor, Jim Lambie, Angela Bulloch and Cory Archangel.
