Daniel Buren: Like Child’s Play

Designed especially for the dimensions of the Anna Schwartz Gallery, Carriageworks presents internationally acclaimed French conceptual artist Daniel Buren’s ‘Like Child’s Play’. The large-scale installation makes reference to German educational theorist Friedrich Wilhem August Frobel’s wooden block toys and his pioneering notion that children learn through play. Buren invites us to explore our relationship with childhood, space and colour as we navigate a minimalist city of toys, newly miniaturised by their towering forms.
