Throughout his varied oeuvre, the artists familiar stripes--8.7 cm-wide alternating white and colored vertical bands--have remained an important, unchanging visual tool in his investigations of sites and systems. For his major new project at the Guggenheim, Buren has designed a reflective, cube-like structure that will reach to the height of the oculus and dramatically bisect the renowned interior of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda. The mirrored exterior surface of Burens construction will reflect a nearly empty museum. Adorning the parapet walls, Burens familiar stripes will draw visitors attention to the powerful personality of the building as well as particular characteristics that inform its role as a space for viewing art.

A selection of key early paintings by the artist will also be exhibited. Accompanying the presentation, an innovative, illustrated newspaper-like publication will fully document Burens history in North America as well as his past and present projects at the Guggenheim. The experimental publication will resemble a newspaper in format and graphics. Information usually organized into chapters in a traditional catalogue will be realized as different sections, much like the Front Page, Arts and Leisure, and Classifieds of a typical news journal. Printed on newsprint paper in mostly black & white, the publication will have the look and feel of The Herald Tribune or The New York Times.

Images of the new site-specific project at the Guggenheim and the paintings on exhibit will beprinted in stand-out color. The innovative format of the journal reflects the ephemeral nature of the artists work as well as his manipulation of varied, familiar sites and systems of visual communication. Over the years Buren has inserted his stripes in paper or cloth in a range of contexts, including billboards, signposts, park benches, hay bales, cafe tables, subway doors, sailboats, escalators, windows, walls, bridges, markets, galleries, and museums, among others to draw attention to what often goes unnoticed, unseen.
