An exhibition presenting Monochrome Appropriated Art

About

At a time of unprecedented interest in the role of colour, appropriated imagery and ownership, Something Else celebrates a paradox; the lush beauty that results when contemporary artists assign colour decisions to chance, readymade source, or arbitrary system.
 
For some artists, Monochrome Art reduced the painting or sculpture to its simplest essence so that the focus of the piece would be on its pure physical elements; colour, form, texture or the way in which it was made.   In addition, artists also apply a single colour to emphasise their art work by reducing considerations of colour as an outcome; as a means to bring attention and spotlight the work itself.
 
Something Else is devoted to the pivotal role of Monochrome Art and Appropriated Art which looks into the various use of the monochrome including reproduction of imagery, commentary of socio-political consequences and institutional critique.
 
Featuring work by Yves Klein, IMI Knoebel, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Sylvie Fleury and Louise Nevelson amongst others the exhibition delivers more than just a treat it as a sketch approach to Monochrome Art.
