By John Harvey

The Greek notice melancholia (literally that means ‘black bile’) defines our experience of melancholy and black moods. but the little black gown is the epitome of elegant and has optimistic meanings. From old and classical instances to at the present time black has been used as an emblem, a device and a metaphor in a plethora of startling and infrequently problematical methods. the tale of Black is an exploration of our ambiguous courting with this such a lot ‘accursed’ of colors all through cultures around the globe.
The old Egyptians used black as their color of demise, turning into the normal clothing for millennia of clergymen of myriad church buildings and cults. The innate austerity and gravity of black has made it a perennial selection for the gowns of retailers, attorneys or even monarchs. Conversely black received attractiveness with the Dandies of the eighteenth and 19th centuries, and within the street-fashions and subcultures of our current time. Artists and architects have continuously been eager about using black; from the earliest cave work, to Caravaggio and Rembrandt’s daring use of darkness and directly to Rothko’s implementing canvasses, black as definition or absence has continually been important to our consultant traditions. White Europeans’ organization of the color with negativity, evil and ‘the different’ aided and fuelled the enslavement of hundreds of thousands of black Africans.
What is the key of the ongoing strength of black to fascinate, compel and divide? How can a unmarried color include such disparate values as evil, dying, stylish, and glamour? the tale of Black skilfully unpicks the social, political, aesthetic and sexual nuances of black through the ages.
