[Nettime-ro] YVES KLEIN A RETROSPECTIVE



  

YVES KLEIN – A RETROSPECTIVE at SCHIRN KUNSTHALLE FRANKFURT
17 SEPTEMBER 2004 – 9 JANUARY 2005

Yves Klein (1928–1962) was regarded as a visionary even by his
contemporaries. The enfant terrible and outstanding judoka’s spectacular
performances attracted considerable attention in the art world, creating an
interest that even increased in the wake of his premature death. Having
anticipated numerous tendencies such as happenings, performances, Land and
Body Art, and aspects of Conceptual Art, Klein’s manifold oeuvre realized
within only eight years has continued to exercise a decisive influence
until this day. The comprehensive retrospective presented by the Schirn
includes more than 100 works from all periods of his work: his first
monochromes in orange, yellow, green, pink, black, and white, his famous
blue monochromes, as well as his sponge reliefs and sculptures, his
much-discussed ”Anthropometries,” for which he used female models as ”live
brushes,” his ”monogold” paintings, and his last experiments with fire and
elements of nature. Yves Klein’s entire oeuvre was aimed at enhancing the
viewer’s sensitivity. The presentation in the Schirn offers a unique
opportunity to explore this experience in all facets of his work. Curators:
Olivier Berggruen, New York; Ingrid Pfeiffer, Schirn.
OPENING HOURS: TUESDAY, FRIDAY TO SUNDAY 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

SCHIRN MAY ALSO BE DOWNLOADED FROM WWW.SCHIRN.DE UNDER ”PRESS.”
