"The Colours of De Stijl" in Kunsthal KAdE

Took place

The three primary colours red, yellow and blue are archetypal and synonymous with De Stijl. Kunsthal KAdE will showcase the use of colour by De Stijl artists in a special exhibition. De Stijl artists strived for colour as an independent element ‘from art’ and not ‘from nature’, guided by the idea that the relationship between colours would lead to ‘harmony’. Using examples by De Stijl artists, Kunsthal KAdE shows the connections to the present and how artists have continued to explore the autonomous power of colour decades after De Stijl was formed. The result is an artistic journey from abstract expressionism and post-war concrete art to contemporary artists who have explored colour as an independent element.
