"COLOR CHART: Reinventing Color, 1950 to Today" at the MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

“COLOR CHART: Reinventing Color, 1950 to Today” is an ongoing exhibit at the MUSEUM OF MODERN ART (MOMA) through May 12. The exhibit “celebrates a paradox: the lush beauty that results when contemporary artists assign color decisions to chance, readymade source, or arbitrary system.” ( info). I took photos of an untitled painted aluminum art construction by American artist DONALD JUDD on the sixth floor of the MOMA, as well as ZOBOP by British-born JIM LAMBIE, a multicolor floor installation made of vinyl tape in the Museum’s Agnes Gund Garden Lobby.
Color Chart also features the works of other artists including Andy Warhol, John Chamberlain, Sherrie Levine, Giulio Paolini, André Cadere, François Morellet, Niele Toroni, Sol LeWitt, and Lawrence Weiner. The MOMA security guards wear striped silk vests in five different colors created by Daniel Buren.
