The Monochrome Symphony – Single-coloured Constellations of Art, Design, Fashion & Music

Past exhibition October 16, 2015 – March 28, 2016

In 1915, Kazimir Malevich painted his monochrome painting Black Square, which, a  hundred years later, remains an icon for a century of radical aesthetics in art, design, fashion and music. Artipelag opened the autumn season with a manifestation of the monochrome as a tribute to Malevich and his successors. Music and monochrome art are still closely related and we wanted to convey this in the exhibition.
