Galería Cayón is pleased to open its second season in Mahon, Menorca, with an exhibition focusing on the exploration of color through the works of Stanley Whitney (Philadelphia, 1946) and Yves Klein (Nice, 1928-Paris, 1962).
For Whitney, every color expresses a living world, a trait equally visible in the works of the late Yves Klein. Klein, another great artist deeply committed to color, shared the idea of color as an autonomous entity. He believed that color possesses a revelatory quality - that all space is viewed differently through color. In his own words: “The line travels through infinity, whereas color is infinity.”
This exhibition, held in the main hall of Galería Cayón in Menorca, will include a selection of recent paintings by Stanley Whitney, as well as Yves Klein’s iconic installation, Pure Pigment. This work by Klein was first presented in 1957 at the Galerie Colette Allendy, Paris. It will be recreated for this exhibition with the support of the Yves Klein Archives.
