Susan Best and Andrew McNamara, with Madeleine King
In Colour Debate
9 March 2017
The 2017 In Colour lecture series opened with a debate that will helped to find an answer to the question: is contemporary art chromophobic?
Two experts on aesthetics, Professors Susan Best (affirmative) and Andrew McNamara (negative), went head-to-head on whether colour still matters in contemporary art.
The debate was chaired by In Colour series curator, Madeleine King, and officially opened by IMA Co-Directors Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh. Official rebuttals from the affirmative and negative were followed by an ‘audience rebuttal’, with comments and questions from the floor.
