With over 50 pieces on display, Yves Klein at Blenheim Palace will be the most comprehensive exhibition of the artist’s work to ever take place in the UK.
Klein’s minimal, and indisputably post-modern, paintings, sculptures and installations will be placed amidst the overwhelming grandeur of this World-Heritage site, initiating a profound dialogue that explores concepts of beauty and the sublime across the ages.
The exhibition marks the fifth anniversary of Blenheim Art Foundation, which has previously welcomed contemporary interventions from Chinese artist Ai Weiwei (2014) and, most recently, American LED light sculptor Jenny Holzer.
Working closely with the Yves Klein Foundation, Blenheim’s invitation adds another thread to the artist’s important legacy. We can’t wait to see Klein’s sonorous blue monochromes invigorating the Great Hall, and the entirely new kind of aesthetic experience that this exhibition will offer.
