Chromatopia is an astonish exhibition about the history of the production of colour in art. It explains how natural materials – from minerals mined from the earth to plants and insects – have been used to create colour in works of art, and clothing and other fabrics. For each colour the material is displayed in its natural and processed states with an explanation of the process, its history and it use in art. It’s on until 18 June at Tacit gallery on Johnston St in Collingwood.
