Feeling Blue, Seeing Red

In Feeling Blue, Seeing Red art meets the history of medicine as Waikato Museum Te Whare Taonga o Waikato uses artworks from the collection to take you on a journey through the four humours of Greek medicine.

Are you feeling hot under the collar? In a dark mood? Or are you green with envy? Greek medicine proposed that four humours ruled the body, mind, and soul, and they all had their own temperatures, moods, and colours. In ‘Feeling Blue, Seeing Red’ you can learn about the humours and see their continuing legacy through historical and contemporary art.
