The importance of meaning becomes paramount when the signifier is as base as the word RED.
Embarrassment to anger, lust to war, importance to limitation; these all become meaning in the presence of the color red. Analogies and metaphors come fast and easy–it is the manipulation that is hard; how to find new methods of use and construction of this quality we point to and say RED.
The Valerie Goodman Gallery is currently exploring the meaning and uses of the color red in the context of experimental art and design. We reach out into the entire spectrum to pull examples of use and contemplation to bring new possible meanings to our relation to the color RED.
“Collection of Red”, a group exhibition which features the work of European, American, and African Designers. On view will be work by the designers, each presenting their innovative use of color and form.
