The Chilean artist Javier Tolo Blum returns to Paris with a bold proposal: an exhibition around Blue. Blue everywhere, in all its forms, as the main character, occupying the space around us. Crossing his work with that of Yves Klein, he establishes an exchange between the blue of his works and the IKB (color registered by the French artist). The name of the exhibition, as a reference to this blending of blue, translates this superposition of cultures, of nuances according to our situated point of view (culturally, historically).
