An artistic encounter on an ambitious scale, the annual Monumenta exhibition invites a well-known contemporary artist to create a work especially for the huge space inside the glass-roofed nave of the Grand Palais in Paris. The exhibition has so far featured Anselm Kiefer in 2007, Richard Serra in 2008, Christian Boltanski in 2010 and Anish Kapoor in 2011. It is Daniel Buren – one of the most highly recognized and honored artists, by both his peers and the public – who will take up the challenge in May and June 2012.
