Color Chart

"Color Chart: Reinventing color, 1950 to Today" is a new exhibit at MoMA. Featuring work by 40 artists, Color Chart celebrates the excitement of color as a mass-produced and standardized product. Many of the show's artists looked at the automobile industry's "commercial palette" as their inspiration. The show inevitably makes the point of questioning whether our experience of color is increasingly dictated by corporations and consultancies like Pantone and the Color Marketing Group.
