The exhibition 'L’emozione dei colori nell’arte' is presented at both the Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea and at the GAM Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea of Turin. The public display includes an extraordinary collection of over 400 works by 125 artists and other practitioners from around the world, dating from the late 17th century to today.

The exhibition investigates the use of colour in art through artistic movements and research that stand apart from canonical histories on color and abstraction, with multiple accounts relating to memory, politics, spirituality, storytelling, psychology and synesthesia. It covers the history, inventions, experience and use of color in modern and contemporary Western art and non-Western cultures present in today’s world.
