TALK & BOOK SIGNING: David Scott Kastan, On Color.
We live in a world of vivid colors, especially out on the East End, and color marks our psychological and social existence. Join author David Scott Kastan, artist Byron Kim, and Parrish director Terrie Sultan as they talk about Kastan’s recent book, co-authored with Stephen Farthing, On Color, which investigates color from numerous perspectives: literary, historical, cultural, anthropological, philosophical, art historical, political, and scientific. In ten lively and wide-ranging chapters, each devoted to a different color, they examine the various ways colors have shaped and continue to shape our social and moral imaginations. Each individual color becomes the focal point for a consideration of one of the extraordinary ways in which color appears and matters in our lives.
