In his over 50-year career, Daniel Buren is best known for his use of contrasting stripes as a visual tool that reveals the specific features and dimensions of a site, often transforming the environment for which it was specifically designed. He alters the perception and context of one's surroundings by modifying the navigation of space, enhancing lighting, obstructing viewpoints, and highlighting certain architectural features. Buren constructs his work in the architecture of both public and private spaces ranging from subway platforms to museums.
Buren has been the subject of major museum exhibitions and his work is included in prestigious private and public collections worldwide. He has exhibited in the Venice Biennale more than 10 times and was awarded the Golden Lion in 1986. He participated in documenta 5, 6, and 7. In 2007, he received the Praemium Imperiale for Painting from Japan and was selected to exhibit at Monumenta 2012 at the Grand Palais in Paris. He has been the subject of large-scale, solo exhibitions at Centre Pompidou in Málaga, Metz, and Paris; Guggenheim Bilbao and New York; and many other institutions. In 2015, he exhibited at Le Centquatre, Paris; in 2017, Del medio círculo al círculo complete: Un recorridio de color, Obras in situ at Museo de Arte Moderno, Bogota; and in 2018, Tondi, situated works at Bortolami, New York. Born in 1938 in France, Buren lives and works in situ.
