Color Chart Exhibition

Moma has launched its first online exhibition called Color Chart, Reinventing Color with works from 1950 to today. As someone who is always looking for color inspiration, I loved having all these pieces at my fingertips. But there's something awkward about clicking through the work with speedy fingers - like somehow the usual molasses pace in a museum gives the work more credit. Such is the online experience I suppose.

I'd love to see this Jim Dine piece in person. The scribbled handwriting is such a nice relief below each tightly painted square.

Read the exhibition's introduction here. And check out the work here.
