#DanielBuren , ‘Tondo’, 2018 🌈 @GaleriaNaraRoesler (booth B10; Galleries) #ArtBaselMiamiBeach 2019
Prominent in Paris in the 1960s, Buren is internationally recognized for his contribution to conceptual art as a founding member of the BMPT group (comprised of Buren, Olivier Mosset, Michel Parmentier, and Niele Toroni), in which he abandoned the idea of painting as object and dismissed the importance of authorship. Pasting pre-fabricated, alternating white and colored vertical stripes on unconventional supports and space – ranging from doorways to billboards to the courtyard of the Palais Royal in Paris – he challenged conventional notions of where art can be seen and how it can be understood. #conceptualart#contemporaryart#artbasel

“I think of them (wall drawings) as a musical score that can be redone by any or some people.” ~Sol LeWitt

Every month, one of our MSU Broad student employees selects a piece from our permanent collection of over 10,000 works to be on display in The Vault. This month, Aria Frawley (class of 2021) chose Martin Puryear’s Mile of Sculpture.
Frawley explains, “As an art history student with a heavy focus on African art, I always find artists that have studied traditional African techniques to be incredibly interesting. Martin Puryear studied sculpture at Yale University and learned about pottery and woodcarving techniques while living in Sierra Leone for two years. Mile of Sculpture highlights the artist’s interest in pushing the boundaries of minimalism and materials, and translates his woodcarving skills onto a two-dimensional plane through the exploration of line and space. Puryear’s ability to create a believable reality, while simultaneously simplifying the scene, absolutely stuns me. I found myself imagining what such a place would look like to me, and what that place looks like to the artist.”
Now on view through January 5, 2020 in The Vault → (link in profile for more information)

Why does this shit always happen in a week when you’re trying to argue for art’s societal value? 🙄. ✊✊💦. From artnet (who appear to be well and truly in Perrotin’s thrall based on the full article):
“Cattelan has been working on the idea for Comedian for about a year, first creating versions in bronze and resin. Somehow, they were lacking. “Wherever I was traveling I had this banana on the wall. I couldn’t figure out how to finish it,” Cattelan told me when Perrotin handed me the phone with him on the line. “In the end, one day I woke up and I said ‘the banana is supposed to be a banana.'” The artist wouldn’t speak to the work’s meaning, but he was partially inspired by the large number of paintings he’s seen at galleries recently. “I’m not in Miami, but I’m sure it’s full of paintings as well,” said Cattelan. “I thought maybe a banana could be a good contribution!” The artist and the gallerist arrived at the $120,000 price after several discussions, trying to strike a balance between an insignificant number that would trivialize the work, and an outlandish one that would be completely ridiculous.” Jesus art-wanking Christ 🤯🍌
Wow! What a fabulous turnout for the Opening Reception of “Who’s Afraid of Red?” Thank you all for coming and dressing up in your best red outfit. .
If you missed the show, you still have a chance to catch it before it closes on December 27.
The sculpture is woven with stripped #ethernet wires. As this is my first/only 3D piece, I had no specific process or approach except to weave the like colors together. Somehow, the web of wires balloons on its own, thus forming a wire cloud.
