Join us to celebrate the US premiere of Voile/Toile–Toile/Voile (Sail/Canvas–Canvas/Sail), at once a sailboat race and a group of paintings. Presented in collaboration with the Minneapolis Sailing Center, this artwork by conceptual artist Daniel Buren (France, b. 1938) consists of two parts: a race of nine Club 420 sailboats with the artist’s custom-made striped sails, followed by an exhibition of the sails as paintings at the Cowles Pavilion in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.
The day’s events include:
9 am: Rigging of sailboats by students from the Minneapolis Sailing Center
10 am: Race begins
11:30 am: Race ends, followed by an announcement of the winner and runners-up
After the event, the sailboats will continue to sail on the lake until early afternoon.
Five information areas will be situated around Bde Maka Ska, with a central point located at the Minneapolis Sailing Center, 3010 E Calhoun Parkway, Minneapolis. This project is presented by the Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board.
