Museum

A major figure in contemporary art, Peter Downsbrough (born 1940 in New Brunswick, New Jersey) has been operating since the early 1970s in the wake of minimalism, at the crossroads of conceptual art and concrete art. His many artistic practices - sculpture, photography, public commission, books, films, sound pieces, applied, during discrete interventions, to the urban space - are based on the notion of position and framing, and question the report to the space and language. An artist of simplicity and destitution, he structures the space by creating discrete but clearly visible volumes using a refined plastic vocabulary, consisting of simple geometric figures, lines, words and painted surfaces. The combination of linguistic and geometric elements thus formalises structured spaces inducing a multiplicity of readings.
