Yves Klein. Theatre of the Void

BOZAR, Brussels

29 Mar - 20 Aug 2017

Klein created paintings and sculptures, influenced the development of performance art, wrote works for the theatre and music and also experimented with radical architecture. This exhibition pays tribute to his pioneering work, which paved the way for movements such as conceptual and minimalist art, installations, and performance art. 30 works offer visitors a broad spectrum of this influential artist’s extraordinary creativity. The works on show are complemented by rarely seen films and photographs, which show how Klein shaped his own image via personal photographs and advertising material that show him as an artist, a visionary, a judoka, and in many more guises. Find out more about the Yves Klein exhibition from BOZAR’s website.
