MM12, Colour Model — Issue 12

Modern Matter’s Colour Model issue is about the way that a full and varied spectrum bands together to make a single fully-unified whole. We mean this literally, and also as a metaphor.

Issue 12 is Modern Matter’s biggest, brightest edition to date. Featuring Walead Beshty, Alex Da Corte, Mark Leckey, Seth Price, Beatrix Ruf, Amalia Ulman, and more.
