Childs Play by Daniel Buren -Madre Contemporary Art Museum, Naples



If you are lucky enough to be traveling to Naples this summer, don’t miss the Madre contemporary art museum’s, Child’s Play, created by by the 77-year-old French artist Daniel Buren.

With this installation visitors are welcomed into the large gallery on the ground floor of the museum, converted into a play area with a veritable game of life-size constructions, or a kindergarten on the scale of the environment. Buren was inspired by the ideas of Friedrich Wilhelm August Fröbel (1782-1852), the German pedagogue who created the concept of and the word – kindergarten. Well, I’m sure that kids would love a kindergarten that looks like this!




Buren, who is known for his use of bold stripes in his installations, worked with French architect Patrick Bouchain to create this colorful wonderland. The exhibitions runs until August 31st, 2015.
