The exhibition showcases over 200 works of the American-born French photographer.
At the end of the 1950s William Klein (1928), who was born in New York, revolutionised the world of photography with his peculiar aesthetics. Klein is a leading name in street photography and his work marked a before and after in this field, thus laying the foundations of modern aesthetics that are still applicable today. In short, he was partly responsible for doing away with the photographic conventions of his day. La Pedrera is going to host a temporary exhibition of Klein’s work, where you’ll be able see the reasons for his relevance.
The retrospective, titled ‘William Klein. Manifest’, presents over 200 photographic works and other documents of a diverse nature, including film and pictorial work, which help reveal William Klein’s talent and bring to light his importance within the 20th-century art world. His work shows an idiosyncratic view, rather powerful and cruel, of modern society.
‘William Klein. Manifest’ will be temporarily exhibited in La Pedrera’s exhibition hall from 15 July. It will be open Thursday– Sunday, from 10.00 am to 8.00 pm and tickets, which can be purchased on the La Pedrera website, cost just €5.00.
