Chroma: Art meets Science

In Memory of ‘Chroma’ is a science-arts collaboration that responds to Derek Jarman’s haunting book, Chroma: A Book of Colour – June 93, written a year before the author’s death. Dr Frank Mair (Chemistry) and PhD researcher Jenna Carine Ashton (Art History & Visual Studies) explore the role of colour within science and visual art through live chemical experiments and a narrative of art, history, memory and science. This highly visual lecture-event invites you to revisit and remember Chroma, Jarman’s exploration of colour, made more poignant by the artist’s encroaching blindness due to AIDS-related complications.
