Turin - Exhibition

Colour in Contextual Play. An Installation by Joseph Kosuth


31 Oct 201720 Jan 2018

The exhibition, installed in the gallery’s piano nobile, combines monochrome works by Castellani, Fontana, Klein and Manzoni with works from Kosuth’s 1968 series “Art as Idea as Idea”. The series is a conceptual investigation into the relationship between words, ideas and objects. It comprised photographs of dictionary definitions of words including ‘meaning’ and ‘idea’.
On this occasion Kosuth creates a site-specific installation that places the examples ‘white’, ‘black’, ‘grey’, ‘red’, ‘green’, ‘yellow’ and ‘violet’ in company with works by the other artists utilising those colours.
