Group Description

In conjunction with the exhibition Colour Chart: Reinventing Colour, 1950 to Today Tate Liverpool invites you to contribute your own colour monochromes to this group. Photographs submitted to the group will be shown on Tate Online, and a 36 images will be used to make a glossy Colour Chart poster.

Photos from the group will be displayed on the exhibition website on Tate Online and the poster we create will also be displayed at Tate Liverpool.

WHAT IS A COLOUR MONOCHROME?

• A colour monochrome is an image of one colour only

• For this group, the main colour of the shot should fill at least 95% of the frame (the frame can also be filled by a single colour)

• Images should be as shot rather than colour manipulated

• Check out the group pool before you submit if you’re confused! Images are moderated, so everything in the pool fits the description.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

The exhibition looks at the moment in twentieth-century art when a group of artists began to perceive colour as 'readymade' rather than as scientific or expressive. It focuses on the paint colour chart as a source of inspiration.

The show includes works by more than forty artists, including Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, Frank Stella, Yves Klein, Richard Serra, Dan Flavin and Damien Hirst.

To submit a photograph to the exhibition, simply join this group and add your photograph to the pool anytime until 15 August 2009.
