Polka presents “William + Klein”, a retrospective organized in celebration of William Klein’s 90th birthday on April 19th 2018. The scenography is made up of a monumental photographic mosaic of 90 prints, retracing Klein’s oeuvre through the most decisive chapters of his practice. From his light abstractions (1948-1952) to his fashion photography (1958-2002), Klein created films, wandered the streets of New York (1954-55), Rome (1956), Moscow (1959) and Tokyo (1961), passing of course through Paris, his adopted home. The exhibition’s selection pays homage to the most French-hearted of American photographers, following the journey of his great career, spanning 70 years of photography.
