As part of Art Basel Paris+ public program, the 2023 exhibition in the museum spaces of the Palais d’Iéna brings together two artists with exceptional careers and their creations: Daniel Buren, Allegro, ma non troppo, travail in situ, 2023 and Michelangelo Pistoletto, Divisione – Moltiplicazione, 2023. Since the early 1960s, their work has been exhibited in major museums, institutions, and galleries around the world.

An unprecedented dialog between the two artists, the exhibition will respond to the unique architecture of the Palais d’Iéna, designed by Auguste Perret in 1937. The art will play with the building’s angles, its large-scale spaces, the subtle polychrome of its exposed concrete, its exceptional luminosity, its urban surroundings, the interplay of perspectives and levels, and its complex symmetry. The particularities of these two artists’ approach lend themselves to this invitation.
