Chromatic Identities

3 November 2020 - 6 February 2021

72A Amoy Street Singapore


Appetite is proud to present Chromatic Identities, a group show exploring colour and its historical, experiential, and anthropological lineage. Colour is a fundamental human experience. The study of both material culture and visual culture is deeply shaped by the patterns of colour through history and cultures. From the geographies and routes of the spice trade, to the pigments and chemicals inherent to a land, the expressions of culture reveal themselves through the colours— hue, tint, tone and shade— that we find in food, textile, architecture, art, and everyday objects.

Bringing together works by Haegue Yang, Jason Martin, Rikrit Tiravanija, Ugo Rondinone, Ceal Floyer, Comp Syn, and Dawn Ng, we aim to build conversation around the cultural associations of colour— present, past, and future. Our interest in colour stands as both a historical and contemporary question, rooted in Nouri and Appetite’s practice of crossroads thinking.

Chromatic Identities is open to the public from 3 Nov 2020 — 6 Feb 2021.
