Three Colours: Yellow | Group Exhibition
When Vincent van Gogh arrived in southern France in the spring of 1888, he immediately wrote to his brother Théo:

Yellow has not lost its poetic gloss in France. For the Mouvement des gilets jaunes, yellow is revolution. For cyclists, it is victory.

With the same Indo-European etymology as ‘gold’ and ‘yell’, yellow commands attention. Sometimes that attention is unpleasant – just ask your nearest yellow-bellied coward.

Closer to home, yellow has been significant for tens of thousands of years. Yellow ochre is still widely used in Indigenous art and a yellow sun takes centre stage on the Australian Aboriginal Flag.

As we enter the spring of 2022, Three Colours: Yellow celebrates and explores this uniquely captivating colour in an Australian context.

Three Colours: Yellow is a curation of contemporary Australian and Indigenous works. Featuring artists: Erika Cholich, John Edwards, Isabel Harden, Nikki Suebwongpat, Freda Eamay, Madeleine Tuckfield-Carrano, Claudio Valenti, Christine West, and Debra West.
