The Experience Of Colour

12 October 2017 - 2 April 2018


Sèvres presents its exceptional exhibition “The Experience of Colour”. A new unique journey of the senses, over and beyond ceramics. From the Sèvres colour laboratory to colours in art!

“The Experience of Colour” explores the perception of colours by artists, adopting an essentially sensorial approach to this fundamental question. A source of pleasure, a symbol of power, a memory stimulus, colours are powerful artistic tools that influence our emotions, effective well beyond our rational thoughts. “The Experience of Colour” – an exhibition marking the 40th anniversary of the Centre Pompidou – invites you to experience colour as matter, colour as space, colour as light, and colour as movement and technique.
