Oscar Tuazon

Born in 1975, Seattle, USA.
Lives and works in Los Angeles, USA.


Tuazon predominantly works with architectural techniques and materials, creating structures and spaces using building supplies such as steel, glass, and wood and a simple do-it-yourself approach. Tuazon’s sculptures, built by hand, are often quasi-functional objects or models of other spaces. The construction process itself can often be seen as a performative part of the work, applying the techniques of Land Art and Minimalism in improvised collaborations with designers, engineers, and builders to produce large-scale installations and public projects.

He has shown his work extensively in the United States and Europe, including solo exhibitions at the Aspen Museum of Art (2019) ; Bellevue Art Museum, Seattle (2019) ; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2016); Le Consortium, Dijon (2015); deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, Massachusetts (2014); the Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2014); Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam (2013); the Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin (2013); Kunsthalle Bern (2010) and Centre International d’Art et du Paysage, Vassivière (2009).

Tuazon’s work has been featured in several important international group exhibitions, including in 2019, the Chicago Architecture Biennial, the Skulptur Projekte in Münster and Documenta 14 Athen, in 2017.
As well as the 5th Beaufort, Triennial of Contemporary Art by the Sea, Oostende, Belgium (2015); the 2012 Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and ILLUMInations, 54th Venice Biennale (2011).

He has been selected for several public commissions, among them: Un Pont, Nouveaux Commanditaires - Fondation de France, Belfort, France (2016) and People, Public Art Fund, Brooklyn Bridge Park, New York (2013).
In October 2017, FIAC gave him carte blanche to present an in-situ project on the prestigious Place Vendôme, Une colonne d'eau.
