Chromaphobia And How To Recognize It
Date: Friday 13 March 1998
David Batchelor is an artist and writer on contemporary art who has increasingly focused his studio work and writing around colour: how it is used in art and design; how it is written and spoken about; how it is valued and, not least, how it is often despised. In this lecture he discusses these and other perceptions of colour. An exhibition of his 3-D work Polymonochromes was held at the Henry Moore Institute in 1997 and his series of works Monochromobiles was on display at the Economist Building in London in early 1998. David Batchelor is senior tutor in Critical Theory at the Royal College of Art, London. He is a regular contributor to art journals and his publications include Minmalism and Chromaphobia.
