Spilling Over: Painting Color in the 1960s

Hear from curator David Breslin and artists Rashid Johnson and Kay WalkingStick about the exhibition Spilling Over: Painting Color in the 1960s. Gathering paintings from the 1960s and early 1970s that inventively use bold, saturated, and even hallucinatory color to activate perception, this exhibition looks to the divergent ways color can be equally a formal problem and a political statement.
