Foam will be dedicated to the life and work of the legendary photographer, filmmaker and designer William Klein.
The career of William Klein (b. 1928) spans more than sixty years. His work had an immense influence on photography during the second half of the twentieth century. The exhibition gives ample coverage to Klein’s ground-breaking work in New York in the 1950s while also displaying work made in Rome, Moscow and Tokyo.
This exceptional William Klein retrospective exhibition has been curated by Foam and can be seen exclusively in Amsterdam.
Throughout his long and extremely productive career, William Klein has always remained his own man: independent, unconventional, enigmatic and contrary, but in everything exceptionally talented. Sizeable exhibitions of his work can seldom be seen in the Netherlands – the last one was held in the Stedelijk Museum in 1967. Foam is therefore particularly proud to present this retrospective exhibition filling the entire museum on the Keizersgracht for three months, doing justice to the life and work of one of the greatest masters of photography.
The exhibition of William Klein can be seen until 12 March 2014 in Foam. Open daily 10am – 6pm, Thurs/Fri 10am – 9pm. Tickets: € 8,75 (William Klein surcharge: €1,25)
