Phillips is pleased to present SEEING RED. Born from curators’ Jane Neal and Fru Tholstrup shared passion for championing artistic individuality, SEEING RED brings together established figures and emerging talents united in how they each “see red”, whether it be anger, passion, fear or love.


This show offers a re-examination of art today and also provides an opportunity for the visitor to indulge the senses - be they olfactory, aural, or visual. SEEING RED colours our lives. It is bold, it is visceral, it is now.

The exhibition features over 70 works by 40 artists exploring how we ‘see red’. A bold and evocative hue, the colour red holds deep emotive and cultural significance for many communities, symbolising luck, joy, passion, danger, love, and more. Throughout history, red has played a significant role in spiritual rituals, adorned cave walls, and held deep-rooted cultural and emotional importance. Associated with warmth and richness, red is also linked to power, as seen in its use by politicians and royalty. SEEING RED encourages personal reflection on how we ‘see red’ and the symbolic meaning of the colour red.

Visitors to the exhibition are invited to reflect on different artistic interpretations of ‘seeing red’, with highlights including works by Marina Abramović, Alma Berrow, Lara Bohinc, Dale Chihuly, Martin Eder, Alexis Soul-Gray, Fredrikson Stallard, and David Brian Smith, among others. Further highlights of this immersive experience include poetry by LionHeart, jewellery designed by Stephen Webster and a bespoke scent created by Azzi Glasser.

The works showcased in the exhibition are united in their examination of the notion of ‘seeing red’and when presented alongside one another, create a dialogue that encourages viewers to reassess the current art landscape and its connection with the remarkable talents on display. This exhibition presents visitors with an experience to stimulate all the senses across a variety of different media. Unconstrained by traditional norms, SEEING RED welcomes mavericks and forward-thinkers offering a collective platform secured by meritocracy, shaping the future luminaries of the art world, and delving into the emotions that colour our lives. This exhibition serves as a re-examination of contemporary art, emphasising an artist's autonomy in an increasingly prescriptive art world. Beyond the visual, SEEING RED engages other senses, providing a unique perspective on art that transcends traditional boundaries.
