#301, Lillooet Room
1961 East Mall on the UBC Campus

March 9th, 1960. A chic soirée at the Gallery d’Arquian, rue Saint Honoré, Paris. Yves Klein changes a woman into paintbrush, the public into voyeurs, and art into spectacle: a high mass of anthropometry. Nietzsche affirmed that art is never more than a (tragic) farce. Klein demonstrates that art is never more than the artist (a clown): Narcissus in seventh heaven. Klein is a flighty knave: a genius joker, for whom art is life – la vie en rose (Rrose Sélavy): a theatre of… the void.

How was the present imagined in the second half of the 20th century and what was considered urgent at each successive edition of the exhibition?
