Weekly Watchlist: The Anarchic Potential of Color and Space

Phyllida Barlow interrupts space with sculpture

Phyllida Barlow’s massive sculptures challenge viewers’ experiences of physical space, stretching the limits of mass, volume, and height as they tower, block, and interrupt space.

“A stand-alone sculpture is using the space that we could occupy, or something more worthwhile,” says Barlow in our recent “London” episode. “Its possibility for being anarchic excites me a lot.”

Playlist: The Anarchic Potential of Color

Inspired by colors found throughout their surroundings, the artists in this playlist fuse multiple influences to illuminate new ideas.

The melding and merging of hues can serve as both a means and an end in abstract compositions, but many of these artists go beyond painting, using light, found objects, and even pollen to infuse their works with color.

Watch the playlist.
