TUE APR 12 @ 6:30 PM
A panel of artists and art historians addresses Burenís groundbreaking work of the 1960s and '70s in the context of the dominant trends in art production in the U.S. during that period.

Daniel Buren: In Retrospect
TUE APR 26 @ 6:30 PM
Distinguished critic and art historian Douglas Crimp speaks about his earliest encounters with Daniel Buren's work. As a curatorial assistant at the Guggenheim Museum in 1971, Crimp experienced firsthand the Guggenheim International Exhibition, 1971 from which Buren's contribution was removed. Crimp discusses this historic event and the critical significance of the artist's work in the late 1960s and '70s.

Daniel Buren: In Response
TUE MAY 10 @ 6:30 PM
Over thirty years ago, Daniel Buren began a dialogue with the powerful architecture of the Frank Lloyd Wright–designed rotunda with his creation of a 65-foot banner. The artist speaks about his current project for the Guggenheim and responds to the reactions the exhibition has garnered from both critics and museum visitors.

Daniel Buren: In Situ:
Examining Institutional Critique

TUE MAY 17 @ 6:30 PM
Museums and galleries, as well as numerous non-art venues, have been both subject and site for Daniel Buren since the 1960s, when he first began investigating an art work's inextricable relationship to the context in which it is seen. An international panel of contemporary artists discusses Buren's influence, as well as the role of institutional critique in their own work and in the current cultural landscape.

Tickets are $20 ($15 for members, students, and seniors). Supporting Associates and Patrons Circle members free with reservations.
