Barometer's annual end-of-year show based on a colour theme. Red and blue are the colours of 2017 - together with all the possibilities these two colours bring - separately and mixed together. Red and blue realized in dyes and pigments, on paper and textiles, when fabricated into abstract images and designs, or observed in nature and seen in the world around us.

Barometer will be closed from Dec 24 and re-open on Jan 31
