«Colour after Klein» exhibition is on view through September 11 at the Barbican centre in London. 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 the most renowned artists of XX and XXI century.
