How are colours made? How do artists use colour in different media? How can colour be used to fool the eye through optical illusions? With over 40 works from across the NGV collections, including paintings, textiles and objects by Asian, European, Indigenous Australian and Pacific artists, this exhibition encourages us to expand our perception, knowledge and experience of colour and discover how colours are used to fool, delight and inspire us in the kaleidoscope of life.
