The Dominik Mersch Gallery Curator Award invites guest curator David Sequeira to explore his own perceptions and expertise in a one-off exhibition opportunity at DMG. His exhibition Colour is a verb embodies an interest in the profound relationship between colour and action, featuring works by David Batchelor, David Cross, David Sequeira and David Thomas.
These artists explore notions of colour through performance art, collage, painting and object-based environments. Through this, Sequeira frames colour as “meaningless in its own right, but embodying the capacity to conjure a range of associations and emotions because of its intimate connection with what people do with it and what it does to people”, he says.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 30 May 2019
