What is the origin of colour? How do you create colour? What is the impact of colour? In honour of the Year of Van Eyck in Ghent, the Design Museum Gent is hosting a large exhibition on the innovative and diverse use of colour. The exhibition starts from the unprecedented hues of Jan van Eyck and illustrates the significance of colour to contemporary designers.
Stroll through the 8 colour groups of Van Eyck in a pigment walk, research projects and experience rooms and explore over 100 design pieces that demonstrate how light, matter and patterns have their effect on colour. The three-part exhibition highlights the theme of colour and the senses through experience rooms – informing viewers to perceive, taste and hear colour.
