Yves Klein famously claimed the blue sky as his first artwork, Andy Warhol described love as a pink cake...

This major exhibition reassesses the powerful and important place of colour in contemporary art, offering a fresh way of experiencing iconic works of painting, installation, photography and sculpture by some of the most significant artists of the 20th and 21st century. Louise Bourgeois, William Eggleston, Anish Kapoor, Pipilotti Rist, Anri Sala, James Turrell and Andy Warhol are among the twenty artists on show.

Starting with an important group of Yves Klein paintings, the exhibition highlights colour’s relationship to desire, the body and utopias. Colour after Klein isn’t about colour rules or theory. Instead it takes pleasure in the rapport between the aesthetic and the conceptual, and the emotive responses colour arouses.

A groundbreaking exhibition that takes the visitor on a sensual, thought-provoking journey.
