« Yves Klein » retrospective , MUAC – Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico,
This exhibition is composed of a body of 75 artworks which recount Yves Klein’s carreer.
The starting point of the show is the year 1957, with Yves Klein’s double exhibition « Propositions Monochromes » to the Colette Allendy Gallery and Iris Clert Gallery, upon which he began his famous « Blue Period ».
The show ends on his reflection about the Immaterial.
A corpus of documents composed of letters, drawings, sketches, photographs, films, comes to complete and reinforce the narrative discourse of the exhibition.
The exhibition has been organized in three angles :
– The monochromy (with a selection of monochromes of differents colors, large blue monochromes)
– The materiality of the flesh (with a selection of Anthropometries, Sculptures, Sponge-Sculptures)
– The Imaterial (with a selection of Fire Paintings, Cession of Immaterial Zones of Sensibility, Monogold and a tryptich Blue Pink Gold)
