The World According to Colour: A Cultural History

Venue: Online

15 Sep 2021 10:00 am

A beguiling cultural history of colour, by the BBC presenter and one of the rising stars of art history, exploring mankind’s extraordinary relationship with colour and the ways colour has shaped our culture and imagination. From Bronze Age gold-work to Turner, Titian to Yves Klein, he’ll look at the gilded gods who animated the world in antiquity to the blue horizons which framed the Age of Discovery, the pristine aspirations of Enlightenment, the technicolour innovation which fuelled the Industrial Revolution and the colour which most embodies the environmental crisis which now faces us.
