Yves Klein / David Hammons

Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, Colorado, United States

An unprecedented coupling of two of the most significant artists of our time, "David Hammons Yves Klein / Yves Klein David Hammons" explores points of aesthetic harmony within two seemingly different practices. Weaving a larger narrative through Hammons’s Basketball and Kool-Aid Drawings, Klein’s Fire Paintings and Monochromes, to both artist’s exploration of performance and public intervention, the exhibition looks at Hammons and Klein as artists who perform a kind of aesthetic alchemy—investing the humblest of everyday materials with deep aesthetic significance.
