Opening Reception: The Colours of Anthropology

A visual anthropology exhibition 14/9/18 – 12/10/18

The Colours of Anthropology exhibition is an exploration of sensory ethnography with a particular focus on colour. It showcases the photographs of ANU anthropologists taken during their research “in the field” in various places around the world. The exhibition is a window into the beauty and dynamics of ethnographic inquiry; a way for ANU’s anthropologists to communicate their research visually and an opportunity for those outside the discipline to gain an insight into the richness and diversity of the human experience. We invite the audience to think about the role of colour in the ways in which people shape the world around themselves, and how they are shaped by it, be it through religious, artistic, political or ethnographic practice.
