Poster, Exhibition Poster, 1971

This is a Poster. It is dated 1971 and we acquired it in 1999. Its medium is offset lithograph. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

The innovative Wide White Space Gallery in Antwerp played a pivotal role in the conceptual art movement in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Daniel Buren, who designed a series of posters for the gallery, showed his work along with Marcel Broodthaers, Gerhard Richter, and Lawrence Weiner. Buren’s designs to announce exhibitions at the space were modeled after his large striped textile paintings: simple, minimal, and structured.
