In 2020, Centre Pompidou Metz will stage “the Sky as Studio. Yves Klein and his contemporaries" - an exhibition exploring the theme of space and the dematerialization of art in the works of Yves Klein and his fellow artists. It focuses on the collaboration between Yves Klein and significant figures from the groups Zero, Nul, the Italian Spatialist movement as well as Gutai artists, to cast light on a shared vision of space as a new artistical dimension and as a territory to conquer. Emma Lavigne curates the exhibition. The 0-INSTITUTE will advice Pompidou on the selection of artworks and lend documents from the archive. The exhibition opens 2 May and runs until 2 November.
