Course Description

From Pigment to Pixel: Color in Modern and Contemporary Art

Dive into color and explore its innovations, impact, and uses through an exciting array of works in MoMA's collection. Curators, educators, and conservators discuss how technological advances and new uses of materials combined with creative experimentation have challenged and expanded ideas of color in painting, sculpture, photography, design, and new media. Unique behind-the-scenes visits to MoMA’s conservation labs, technical analysis, studio demonstrations, and exercises complement class discussions and enhance understanding of the inventive and provocative uses of color in art and design, from the rational to the exuberant. Artists discussed include Georges-Pierre Seurat, Paul Gauguin, Henri Matisse, Vasily Kandinsky, Josef Albers, Hans Hofmann, Yves Klein, Ad Reinhardt, Joe Colombo, Helen Levitt, William Eggleston, Cindy Sherman, and Pipilotti Rist.
