This exhibition takes visitors on a journey through 565 million years of history, exploring how vision developed as well as how colour is a big influence on art and design. But what have critics made of it?
The Guardian: ***** Jonathan Jones said: “It makes you aware of your own eyes as you explore this exhibition about seeing in the natural world.”
Evening Standard: **** Philippa Stockley wrote: “To fully absorb this show you must read the texts, but it will change how you see for ever.”
The Telegraph: *** Mark Hudson commented: “But if the exhibition doesn’t deliver quite the polychromatic splurge you might have hoped for, its strength lies in the way it resists dumbing down.”
Geographical.co.uk: ” The interactivity and vibrancy of the exhibition is exactly what the Natural History Museum needs for this type of subject.”
London Visitors: “This intriguing and entertaining exhibition uses a variety of media to ask visitors to look at colour and vision in a way that will allow them to understand the story of its development over millions of years.”
Time Out: ***** “In encouraging visitors to see through other eyes, ‘Colour and Vision’ reveals the world in all its many-hued magnificence.”
Londonist: ***** “This is yet another perfect family exhibition from the Natural History Museum.”
Colour and Vision: Through the Eyes of Nature will be on at the Natural History Museum until the 6th November. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit/exhibitions/colour-and-vision-exhibition.html.
