Open Call to Artists

An open invitation to all artists to take inspiration from the monumental piece in the Rembrandt van Rijn Collection – COLOUR SYMPHONY by MICHÉLE NIGRINI completed in 1993.

Details from the monumental 16 meter panel installation Colour Symphony, 1993 by Michéle Nigrini.

This is an open call for responsive artworks to be submitted for possible inclusion in a group exhibition to be showcased in the Jan Rupert Art Centre, Graaff-Reinet, during the first quarter of 2021.
Colour Symphony was created by taking a Modernist approach to observe and explore the reactions of colours to each other, how scale can influence colour and marks, and how a combination of line, colour and form activates and creates energy and flow.
Initially displayed as a 16 meter strip comprising out of 395 panels of oil paint on chipboard. Achromatic greys start and conclude the spectrum with a central feature that consist of 77 panels featuring a full colour spectrum of contrasts and mixes.
