Description

Harlem School of the Arts Department of Art & Design presents
COLOR CODES: Translating Color

Color, a collaboration between the eye and the brain, translates light, resulting in a rainbow of hues we name and categorize. Apples are red, the sky is blue and grass is green--and though we happily label the color of these objects, our individual experiences of these colors vary from that of our neighbor. Definitions of colors are the result of interpreting and agreeing on what we assume to be a universal experience--but assumptions are dangerous and have led to revelations ranging from surprising to destructive.

Harlem School of the Arts with curator and Director of Art & Design, Adrienne Elise Tarver, proudly presents, “Color Codes: Translating Color,” the first exhibition of the 2018 exhibition season at the HSA Gallery which this year, tackles the theme of Translation. The artists in “Color Codes” question our collective assumptions and interpretations of color--from race to money to cognitive perception.
