Combining natural and artificial elements, Oscar Tuazon creates works that recall both American Minimalism, the aesthetics of DIY, and vernacular architecture. Built on unstable equilibria, combinations of elements that make up his sculptures are often the result of a path halfway between sculpture and architecture, in which objects of consumption and their potential are questioned. At the Strozzina, Tuazon presents a work in which an item of daily use is inserted into an evolving modular structure. The artist’s works are instable structures, critical constructions through which he searches for an intermediate dimension between sculpture and installation.

Oscar Tuazon was born in 1975 in Seattle, Washington, USA. Lives and works in Los Angeles, California, USA. His solo exhibitions include: Oscar Tuazon. Alone in an EmptyRoom, Ludwig Museum, Cologne (2014); Sensory Spaces 1, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam (2013); Oscar Tuazon, Centre d’édition contemporaine, Geneva (2012); Die, Power Station, Dallas (2011); My Mistake, Institute of Contemporary Art, London (2010).

Con la grande mostra dedicata ad Ai Weiwei (23 settembre 2016-22 gennaio 2017) per la prima volta Palazzo Strozzi diventa uno spazio espositivo unitario che comprende facciata, Cortile, Piano Nobile e Strozzina.

L’arte contemporanea esce dalla Strozzina e si espande sia a livello espositivo che di comunicazione, in uno scenario in cui Palazzo Strozzi partecipa attivamente all’avanguardia artistica del nostro tempo.

Per questo motivo le informazioni relative alla mostra Ai Weiwei. Libero e il programma di mostre e attività future dedicato all'arte contemporanea saranno consultabili direttamente al sito www.palazzostrozzi.org e sui canali social di Palazzo Strozzi.
