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.

The Familiar and the Exotic, Last Chance to See, Diane Arbus, Jeu de Paume, Paris
Diane Arbus revolutionised the art she practised. Her bold subject matter and photographic approach produced a body of work that is shocking in its purity, in its steadfast celebration of things as they are.
Memory Lane at la galerie du jour agnès b, Paris
Memory Lane explicitly prompts memories as a result of reconstructed history through the means of art. It’s the series of photographs, Tito in War by Milomir Kovačević, that commemorates Tito’s portrait in after-war public spaces.
