Description

TURNER LECTURE

and Presentation of the Colour Group Turner Medal to

SARAH STREET

The Art of Film Colour



Every two years the Colour Group (Great Britain) invites a distinguished artist or art historian to give The Turner Lecture, named in honour of Britain's greatest colourist. A sterling silver medal is awarded to mark the occasion, and the recipient presents a keynote lecture related to his or her work.

The 2019 Turner Medal will be awarded to Sarah Street after her lecture.

What is The Art of Film Colour? This lecture examines themes and problems shared between film and other art forms, while highlighting areas specific to film. Through a range of illustrated examples from the silent era to today’s digital environment, the lecture focuses on key contexts for creative enterprise in colour filmmaking. It identifies issues that present particular challenges, including questions of nomenclature, authenticity and realism, and designing particular colour palettes or ‘looks’ for films. The creative interventions of film technicians and other personnel who used colour in special or skilful ways are discussed in an assessment of film’s contribution to the cultural history of colour.
