In 2003, Klein collaborated with Madonna, creating an exhibition installation named X-STaTIC PRO=CeSS. It included photography from the photoshoot in W magazine and seven video segments. The installation ran from March 28 to May 3, 2003 in New York gallery, Deitch Projects, it then travelled the world in an edited form.[8]

The title of the exhibition comes from a song called 'X-Static Process' on Madonna's 2003 album American Life.

A coffee table book was also released to accompany the exhibition which retailed for $350 and limited to 1000 copies. The book was designed by Giovanni Bianco and was hand-bound and printed in Italy on customized paper with brushed cotton paper slipcase.

Steven Klein’s (*1965 in Rhode Island) fascination of the arts grew while he studied painting at the famous Rhode Island School of Design. Since the 1990s, Steven Klein has produced numerous photo series with international stars. Apart from creating the legendary exhibition installation »X-STaTIC PRO=CeSS« with photographs and videos of Madonna, Klein has worked with celebrities such as Britney Spears, David Beckham, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, and Lady Gaga. The portrayal of these artists, who are famous for their controversial performances and eccentric life styles, seems an apt choice for Steven Klein, whose work has always been prone to provocation. In 2005, Klein created a photo series with two of the most celebrated film stars who were then just about to become Hollywood’s super couple: In »Case Study«, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt portray an American family, erotic tension and themes like wealth and loneliness filtering through the seemingly perfect surface. Steven Klein works and lives in New York.
