The White Show is a high summer meditation on the eternally coolest of colours. Made especially for PM Gallery, the exhibition includes painting, sculpture, reliefs, photography, drawing and film. At the heart of the show are two small photographs by John Riddy which provide the jumping-off point for what follows. In soft and austere tones they depict pale stone classical interiors in Milan and Perugia. In Europe at least, classicism is one place where the modern relationship to the colour white begins. Through important artworks dating from the early 1960s to the present day, The White Show explores the symbolism and meaning of the colour white. The exhibition tracks ideas from high modernism to contemporary conceptualism addressing a wide range of questions around purity, space and spirituality, race and class, absence, invisibility and light and shadow.
