Presented by Plug In ICA, and hosted at the Winnipeg Art Gallery in their auditorium on Tuesday, April 9, 2019, the legendary Buren will give a public talk detailing his bold and categorical work.

Plug In ICA presents this talk as part of our STAGES Speaker Series in anticipation of the STAGES biennial in 2019. For STAGES 2019, Buren will remount a work for the first time since 1981 titled, Limited Time Only!. 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 of the wallpaper itself: $50 for one wall, $125 for an entire room. Plug In ICA will work with Buren to restage this work in Winnipeg in August 2019, selecting an apartment block similar in history and economic status to the original, 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.
