Daniel Buren: Voile/Toile – Toile/Voile

This summer, conceptual artist Daniel Buren's Voile/Toile – Toile/Voile, a major public artwork, has its U.S. premiere. The two-part artwork evoking paintings blown by the wind, racing and moving in formation is presented in a sailboat race on Bde Maka Ska (June 23), followed by an installation in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden’s Cowles Pavilion (June 26–October 7).  

For more than 50 years, Buren has been extending the possibilities of painting, placing brightly striped works in public spaces—on monuments, city squares, billboards, and train stations—around the world. The performance takes the form of the sailboat regatta on Bde Maka Ska (formerly Lake Calhoun), featuring the artist’s signature custom-made, striped sails and the outdoor installation of the sails that will be featured in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden’s Cowles Pavilion on the Walker campus. Conceived especially for Minneapolis, known also as the “City of Lakes,” Buren’s commission celebrates the area’s unique landscape and identity. 

Additionally, Join the artist Daniel Buren for a conversation with Walker curator Pavel Pyś about the artist’s work in performance, painting, installation, and sculpture on June 26
