Must see: Yves Klein and the Tangible World

On show @ Lévy Gorvy Dayan in NYC


The renowned New York City art gallery Lévy Gorvy Dayan is currently presenting the works of beloved French artist Yves Klein in a solo exhibition titled Yves Klein and the Tangible World. Including nearly 30 pieces from Anthropométries, Peintures de feu, and Sculpture Tactile, this exhibition showcases Klein’s exploration of the body as a central element in his artistic oeuvre.

Klein began using nude models, which he called “living brushes,” in 1958 during a private performance in Paris and unlike other artists, his work was the result of a beautifully orchestrated harmony between the artist and the model. 

What made Klein a visionary was the way he portrayed the body not only as a mere “marker”, but a symbol of freedom and a celebration of life. His work invites the audience to contemplate on the profound connection between the human form, energy, and artistic expression. 

On display till May 25th, this exhibition THE perfect spot to add some colours to a warm spring day.
