Daniel Buren 'Limited Time Only!' at Plug In ICA's STAGES Biennial
19 August 2019For Plug In ICA's STAGES Biennial, Daniel Buren has remounted Limited Time Only! for the first time since its inception in 1981. This site-specific intervention was initially produced in Toronto in a St. James Town apartment block for which Buren offered to wallpaper apartments within the building with his signature stripes. Residents of the apartment block could have an artwork by Buren for the minimal cost: $50 for one wall; $125 for an entire room.
Plug In ICA with Buren, restages this work in Winnipeg at Eleven Evergreen Place, offering its residents an opportunity to have a work by Buren installed in their homes for a Limited Time Only!. The title emulates language used in advertising, but references the tenuous and precarious nature of the renter who will own an artwork by Buren only as long as they continue to stay a renter in their current apartment.
Location: 11 Evergreen Place, Evergreen Towers, Winnipeg
Open hours: 12 – 6pm, 7 days a week during STAGES from August 17 to September 8, 2019.
