This exhibition gathered perspectives on the topic of colour from the disciplines of fine art, poetry, and music theory.
The quest for colour:
“When I moved to Doha in 2012, I read an opinion piece in a magazine that deduced Doha’s skyline colour to two hues; sand-beige and beige. On the contrary, Qatar’s intense dessert light heightened my sensitivity to the subtlest of contrasts.” –– Charlene Kasdorf
In Doha, a person’s sensitivity to colour contrast can became more acute, similar to the adjustment of vision in the dark. An awareness of fine colour subtleties strengthen one’s awareness of colour as a whole.
