The same project as the one installed at the show "557.087" in Seattle in September, 1969, but with seven other people.

a) [Nom}: Daniel Buren.
b) [Date of birth}: 25 March, 1938
c) [Place of birth]: Paris
d) [title, dimensions, material, date of (work)]: Nothing
e) [Photo or sketch of the work]: Nothing
f) [Additional information]:
1. I am not personally exhibiting in this show.
2. You can see during the two exhibitions, in Seattle and in Vancouver, some pieces of paper with white and colored stripes, pasted up on walls, fences, windows, etc., or inside the museum.
3. this display is the work of several people, whose names you will find in the catalogue, just like the names of the invited artists. It is a question of seeing the vertical stripes, alternating white and colored, which are nothing but white and colored stripes, which refer simply to white and colored stripes, whatever be their location, color, number or creator.
