Yves Klein: with the void, full powers.

HIRSHHORN MUSEUM AND SCULPTURE GARDEN

May 20-September 12

Curated by Kerry Brougher and Philippe Vergne

Moving fluidly from indulgent materialism to transcendental spiritualism, from modernist painting to conceptual practices, Yves Klein has often seemed enigmatic. This large retrospective--co-organized with the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis--offers another chance to ponder his seemingly contradictory practice. On view are his iconic blue monochromes and "Anthropometries," along with many lesser-known works, including several rarely shown films. The catalogue builds on the exhibition's argument for Klein's work marking "the shift from modern to contemporary practice," with essays by Klein scholar Klaus Ottmann, art historian Kaira Cabanas, Walker curatorial fellow Andria Hickey, and the show's curators, along with previously unpublished translations of Klein's writings. Travels to the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Oct. 23, 2010-Feb. 13, 2011.
