The color blue has an extensive and rich artistic history, exerting its power on humanity’s social, religious, and aesthetic imagination from ancient times onwards. Out of the medieval era, various shades of blue came to signify royalty, religious purity, romance, sadness, and the great expanses of nature. In the 20th century, the rise of monochrome and the advent of space photography further expanded the blue’s aesthetic domain. That being said, what’s new in blue? Our call seeks to further this exploration of color in contemporary practice. Works in traditional and new media are invited, as are the freshest and freest ideas.
