William Klein: Retrospective at Foam in Amsterdam

William Klein Retrospective Exhibition
December 20, 2013 - March 12, 2014

Keizersgracht 609
1017 DS Amsterdam

Foam finishes 2013 with a unique retrospective exhibition of the work of William Klein. The entire museum will be dedicated to the life and work of this legendary photographer, filmmaker and designer.

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.

His work for Vogue shows Klein was a great innovator in the field of fashion photography. In addition to his early experiments with abstract photography, his large-scale, painted-on contact prints that he's been creating in more recent years will also be on view in Foam. A selection of Klein's feature films and documentaries will be shown in Foam's 3h library space.

This exceptional William Klein retrospective exhibition has been curated by Foam and can be seen exclusively in Amsterdam. Please contact the museum for ticket sales and availability.
