Conceptual artist André Cadere strove to remove art from the restrictive structure of museums and galleries. He is best known for his “Barres de bois rond” (round wooden bars) (1970-78) that he would carry on his shoulders to outdoor public spaces and exhibition openings in an effort to question art’s relative relationship to its physical and institutional environment. Visually un-intrusive—adorned only with a simple pattern of painted stripes in a limited color palette—the bars served as both sculptural and performance pieces, opening up the ways in which a person might interact with them.
