Colour in context: Zena O'Connor on colour, power and identity

Listen to traditional Russian folk music

The Gallery is celebrating the exhibition Masters of modern art from the Hermitage. Modern artists from Monet to Kandinsky transformed the use of colour in art and it still draws us to their works today. Hear about how colour shapes our world with this series of talks, Off the charts. This week catch colour theorist Zena O’Connor talking about the power of colour in branding. Join a Colour in focus tour through the exhibition, then grab a drink and listen to From Russia with Love performing traditional Russian and French folk songs.
