Oscar Tuazon

Museum Ludwig, Cologne
Heinrich-Böll-Platz
February 15 - July 13

Curated by Philipp Kaiser and Ana Brohm

Oscar Tuazon has established a position as one of the most provocative sculptors of his generation, taking the legacies of Minimalism, post-Minimalism, Land art, and Conceptualism into fresh, curious territories. Trained as an architect, Tuazon operates deftly between indoor and outdoor space, between the “specific object” and the floorboard. His work is at once complexly referential with respect to art history yet mundane in a challenging way, requiring one to confront myriad disturbances in a three-dimensional space infused with an expressionism wrought by quotidian means. The show will extend through more than two stories, with a new, site-specific work created for the staircase.
