Open 29 August – 14 October at Glasshouse Arts Centre, experienceCOLOUR is a remarkably beautiful, hands-on exhibition, inviting visitors of all ages and abilities to explore the fascinating science and art of colour through large scale installations, displays and experiments. Come and discover the world of colour, find out how different colours influence us all, and ask new questions about the meanings of colour in the world around us.
Visitors are invited to act as researchers – to play and be creative with experimental exhibits ranging from colour appearance in nature to its scientific explanation and the application of colour in technology and art.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a varied programme of conferences, lectures, talks and shows related to the Art and Science of colour.

Exhibition Background
The exhibition was developed in Switzerland by a team of scientists and artists at the Goetheanum. The exhibition explores many strands of science, philosophy, art and education theory. It is a fascinating exploration of the science of colour, how different colours affect us all, and the power of colour.
