Aspen Art Museum


David Hammons Yves Klein / Yves Klein David Hammons

Aug 9, 2014-Nov 30, 2014
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.
All new Aspen Art Museum inaugural exhibitions are generously underwritten by Stefan Edlis and Gael Neeson. Indirect exhibition costs are funded in part by the AAM National Council.
