Poster, Exhibition Poster, 1971
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.
