Free Color is a film that follows Carlos Cruz-Diez, one of the 20th century’s seminal thinkers in the field of color, on his ultimate quest: freeing color from form. Directed by Alberto Arvelo, this documentary is an intriguing conversation on the boundaries of color, the relationship between art and science, and a journey into the creative process of an artist whose creativity, inventiveness, and imagination knew no boundaries!

Also, Cruz-Diez’s Chromosaturation MFAH, 1965/2017 is on view in the Cherie and Jim Flores Tunnel in the Nancy and Rich Kinder Building.

The film will be presented at the Brown Auditorium Theater, The Caroline Wiess Law Building on Sunday, October 3rd at 5.00 PM, on Thursday, October 7 at 3.00 PM. and then on Thursday, October 21 at 3.00 PM
