Daniel Buren: dance between triangles and lozenges for three colors, work in situ
On 10 March at 7:00 pm, a new extraordinary permanent installation, conceived and executed for MACRO by a leading figure of contemporary art, Daniel Buren, will open. With his work, the Museum continues to define a new image for its exhibition spaces.
A great master of contemporary art, Daniel Buren (Boulogne-Billancourt, 1938) conceived his first major permanent work in Rome for the museum, while observing and exploring MACRO's spaces. Imagined for the area known as the "belvedere," Buren's reflective work with its wonderful play of light and perspective will become a part of the museum's future. It will participate a few months from now in the birth of the new wing designed by Odile Decq.
Suspended on the first floor, above the current entrance to the Museum, Buren created a large scale installation which ideally will multiply the structure's architectural lines. Buren himself said that he thought his work, imagined as a dance of forms and light in dialogue with MACRO's spaces.
This new permanent presence within MACRO's exhibition spaces is promoted by the City of Rome, Council of Culture and Communication - Superintendence of Cultural Heritage. It was made possible with the support of UniCredit Group - already one of the Museum's partners thanks to the long-term loan of important works by Stefano Arienti, Armin Linke, Adrian Paci, Nicola Pellegrini, and Ottonella Mocellin - and in cooperation with Incontri Internazionali d'Arte. With this the Museum confirms its status as a home for positive synergies and as an active laboratory for fruitful cooperation.
