Red is the colour of... was installed as part of the New Contemporaries 2022 exhibition at South London Gallery from 9th December 2022 - 12th March 2023.

‘The skill and care in the finish of Lou Baker's sculptural knitted installation elevates the suspended clots that unravel as they ooze towards the floor, indicating an entropy beyond human comprehension that flows through the exhibition.’

Review in Art Monthly magazine, @art_monthly_uk Issue 462 Dec -Jan 22-23, ‘New Contemporaries’ by Lauren Velvick

‘(New Contemporaries) acts as a sort of state-of-play for young art in this country, a way to take the pulse of creativity in the UK. And this year’s showing is as good as ever. There’s a bunch of painting, loads of installation, plenty of cleverness and oodles of ideas.’
