In 1960 Elena Palumbo-Mosca was one of three women involved in Yves Klein’s Anthropometries, paintings produced as performances in front of an audience in a Paris Gallery. These paintings, which choreographed nude models to transfer blue pigment onto canvas, are amongst Klein’s most well-known performative works.
On Saturday 26th November Elena will be in-conversation with Cathy Butterworth, Edge Hill University Arts Manager, reflecting on and discussing her involvement in Anthropometries, currently on display as part of Tate Liverpool’s retrospective of the artist’s work. Edge Hill University is sponsoring Yves Klein as part of its partnership with Tate Liverpool which gives students and staff free admission to all exhibitions. The University’s Institute for Creative Enterprise will be hosting In Conversation about Yves Klein on campus on December 7th.
