The bigger the better!

Paris’ definition of MONUMENTA: One very well-known artist that creates a massive piece in the immense space of the Grand Palais. This annual event that showcases a specific intervention is carried out this year by Daniel Buren, an expert on public art (he has also done the playful columns at the Palais Royal), who regularly uses light, simple geometry and basic yet joyful colors in his work to modify the perception of the spectator. If last year Anish Kapoor left us breathless, this time Daniel Buren is taking us on an acid trip.
Enjoy the ride!

Confrontation artistique sans équivalent dans le monde, organisée par le ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, MONUMENTA invite chaque année un artiste contemporain de renommée internationale à investir les 13 500 m² de la Nef du Grand Palais avec une œuvre spécialement conçue pour l’occasion. Cette année, Daniel Buren est l’invité d’honneur.
