Spring Color Awash at the Institute of Contemporary Art

One of my fav design blogs over at New England Home Magazine is highlighting the smashing exhibition “Figuring Color” over at the Institute of Contemporary Art.

With this wonderful spring weather, arousing the senses with this amazing display of color and its mood enhancing qualities is a fun activity for date night or if you’re considering a new palette for your home and are looking for inspiration.

And take note: the Charline von Heyl exhibit will open next week at the ICA, marking the artist’s first showing in Boston!

If winter has left you feeling starved for color, you may be contemplating a few new throw pillows for the sofa or perhaps some fresh paint colors. But for those who need color therapy on a grander scale, a visit to Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art could be just the thing.

At the ICA’s latest exhibition, Figuring Color, you will see weird, wonderful and decidedly colorful works in four different mediums—outlandish ceramics by Kathy Butterly, off-kilter furniture by Ray McMakin, thought-provoking installations by Felix Gonzalez-Torres and (my personal favorite) exuberant paintings by Sue Williams. But be warned: it’s a far cry from daffodils and Marimekko prints. The artists use color and form as vehicles to explore ideas about the body, some of which aren’t so bright and cheery.
