Color Schemes
A film by Shu Lea Cheang
1989, 28 minutes, Color, VHS
Order No. W99193
An upbeat, ironic look at America’s multicultural society, COLOR SCHEMES uses the metaphor of “color wash” to tackle conceptions of racial assimilation. Challenging stereotypes, twelve writer/performers collaborate on four performance sequences—soak, wash, rinse and extract. Spinning through this tumble- jumble of America’s washload, the performers scheme to claim racial images that remain color vivid.

    “Reflects with wit and candor on the realities and the misconceptions of race assimilation in American society and culture.”
