Talks

Daniel Buren

A keynote by the legendary French artist

In a career spanning 40 years, Daniel Buren has created art in public spaces, written critical texts and collaborated with artists from different generations. His work is always site specific and characterized by its use of contrasting coloured vertical stripes, most notably Two Planes (1986) for the courtyard of the Palais Royal, Paris. In 2011 he created work for Turner Contemporary Margate and was honoured with a retrospective at the Centre Pompidou-Metz. For Frieze Talks, Buren speaks about his approach to his work’s complex relationship to the space in which it is presented.

Daniel Buren is an artist who lives and works in situ.
