Daniel Buren: Situated Lithographs

January 29, 1998March 14, 1998

Works by the French Conceptual artist Daniel Buren, entitled 'Situated Lithographs', are on view at Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl January 29th through March 14th. 

Buren is best known for his 'striped' imagery, alternating white and colored bands that are always vertical and exactly 8.7 cm (3 7/16'') wide. Buren calls the motif of these bands his "visual tool"; it is not the bands themselves that the artist wishes us to notice but instead they are meant to stimulate us to become sensitive to the location and structure of the rooms or the sites they inhabit.
