Red is a color that calls up associations of love, luck, passion, and violence but also the mementos of childhood, such as balloons and toys. It is found in Paleolithic painting, China’s imperial and popular imagery, the Dutch Renaissance, it is also present in the contemporary graphic texts of Barbara Kruger and the abstract etchings of Anish Kapoor. This is the second installment of Site:Brooklyn’s ongoing investigation into color: its meaning, its roles, and place in contemporary practice. We are seeking works in all genres and mediums.
