Missing Hue of the Rainbow takes up histories of color’s ambivalent relationship to identity, by bringing together works in photography, video, artist’s books, literature and poetry. Across diverse fields of conceptualism, black feminist concerns in the U.S. and Dalit history in India, the exhibition considers how color has afforded artists and writers a simultaneous site of oppression and resistance. Artists include Edith Dekyndt, Adrian Piper, Lorna Simpson, Sikhamani, and Rirkrit Tiravanija.
A film-screening by New Delhi based filmmaker Sanjay Kak will accompany the exhibition, in addition to an ongoing bibliography of books on the subject of dissent, sourced from around the world. A selection of reading materials drawn from this Dissent Library will be presented physically at the CCS Bard Library and Archives and on the project website of Tonalities of Dissent.
