De la Coureur de la Matière
By Daniel Buren

Daniel Buren was born in Boulogne-Billancourt, France in 1938. He attended the Ecole Superiure de Metiers d'Art in Paris in 1960. In the beginning of his artistic career, he was associated with the conceptual artists of the time. Protesting traditional art, Buren reduces his paintings to a series of uniform, infinite vertical bands. In 1967, he wrote a manifesto with Toroni, Parmentier and Mosset where they established themselves as different kinds of artists. He has participated in the Venice Biennale and his work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, Tokuro Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo. His work can be found in the permanent collections of Museo di Capodimonte, Naples, and Castello di Rivoli Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, Italy.
