Gagosian Shop, Paris
As a tribute to Yves Klein to celebrate what would have been his ninetieth birthday, Gagosian Shop, Paris, presents Yves Klein: By the Book. The shop takeover will include rare books and ephemera. In various ways these printed works, such as Dimanche 27 novembre 1960 “Le journal d’un seul jour” (1960) and Les Fondements du Judo (1954), helped Klein to articulate his ideas to a broader audience. Significant new and out-of-print monographs and exhibition catalogues will also be available. For inquiries about available publications please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
