Daniel Buren has punctuated the last 40 years of art with unforgettable interventions, controversial critical texts, thought-provoking public art projects and engaging collaborations with artists from different generations. Buren’s latest work, Excentriques forms part of Monumenta 12 at the Grand Palais in Paris. An artistic interaction on an unparalleled scale, Monumenta 2012 continues until 21 June 2012. We’ve heard it’s going to be sunny in Paris this weekend and the moment when the sunlight comes through the vast glass atrium of the Grand Palais transforms the work into a glistening and vibrant coloured pool of light. It’s not to be missed.
