About the Exhibition:
In Pink is a Color That Feels Like Love, Philadelphia-based curator Katy Scarlett brings together three artists whose work is deeply invested in the formal use of color paired with recognizable motifs in order to reflect on issues of representation. The artists address stereotypes related to race, gender, sexuality, and class, figuring color imbued with broader cultural meaning as a central subject in order to critique dominant paradigms.
The featured artists factor color in their work in different ways that prompt us to consider: What are the social and political meanings attached to color? In what ways does color, infused with symbolic value, shape our perceptions of the world around us? In what ways does it shape our perceptions of ourselves and other communities?
