In his long career as an artist of international renown, Daniel Buren (1938) received many acknowledgements and prizes among which the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 1986 and the Praemium Imperiale for painting by the Japan Art Foundation in 2007.
After his studies at the Ecole des Meteris d’Art and at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, in the middle Sixties he started to perform public works, installations and exhibitions all over the world. At the beginning of his artistic career, Buren carried out a series of experimentations on the boundary of painting, sculpture and cinema. His first solo exhibition at the Galleria Apollinaire in Milan (1968) was followed by his participation in the 5th International Exhibition at the Guggenheim in New York (1971) and in Documenta V curated by Harald Szeemann in 1972, where his prestige in conceptual art was acknowledged. .

After the success at the Grand Palais in Paris on the occasion of Monumenta 2012 (more than 300 thousand viewers), Daniel Buren comes to the Scolacium Archaeological Site being the protagonist of Intersezioni 2012.
This long-awaited exhibition is now at its seventh edition and is one of the most significant cultural events of the Summer. This year, it hosts the unprecedented project by the French master who decided to place in the Scolacium Park five grand installations especially designed for this site, which benefits from a new interpretation. Just like in the previous editions, the project also involves the MARCA Museum in Catanzaro. Both events are curated by Alberto Fiz, the Artistic Director of the MARCA Museum.
Building on vestige: Inpermanence. Works in situ (Construire sur des vestiges, d'un éphémère à l'autre. Travaux in situ) is the title of the exhibition event which opens on Friday 27th July at 7:30 pm. and will remain open until October 7th, 2012.
