The exhibition Daniel Buren: A Fresco responds the question: “How can you exhibit works of art which are connected to the place in which they were created, anywhere in the world?”. Since the 1960s the French artist Daniel Buren (°1938) has been developing an oeuvre characterised by the motif of 8,7 cm wide vertical white and coloured stripes in private homes, museums and public space. For his exhibition at the Centre for Fine Arts, Daniel Buren created a specific intervention in which his work enters into dialogue with that by artists who have inspired him. A new work in the form of a film offers a complete panorama of the artist’s temporary and permanent installations. In combination with the exhibited works, the film summarises the essence of Buren’s quest for beauty: a Fresco.
Artists: Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Constantin Brancusi, Jackson Pollock, Fernand Léger, Marc Chagall, Sol LeWitt,… & Daniel Buren.
