Discover the Groninger Museum’s collection in this vivid exhibition. How does colour affect you? How do we use it? The exhibition considers these questions in original ways.

Colours carry meaning; they evoke emotion and carry symbolic weight. Red stands for desire and passion in Cornelie Tollens’s challenging photo series, and for an oppressive political regime in the photographs of the Chinese artist Chi Peng. Colour! brings together a playful selection of outstanding pieces from the museum's collection by artists and designers including Inez van Lamsweerde, Jeff Koons, and the painters of De Ploeg.
