Drawing inspiration from Professor Robert Baines, who coined the term, the exhibition includes works from 37 of the gallery’s represented artists who broadly explore the idea of an objects fate.

With over 40 works from across the NGV collections, including paintings, textiles and objects by Asian, European, Indigenous Australian and Pacific artists, this exhibition encourages us to expand our perception, knowledge and experience of colour and discover how colours are used to fool, delight and inspire us in the kaleidoscope of life.“; until 5th February 2012; includes a piece by Robert Baines (which is great!)
