Ahmet Öğüt: Underestimated Zones

Ahmet Öğüt: Underestimated Zones
October 23, 2010 – January 9, 2011
Laumeier Sculpture Park Galleries

St. Louis, MO 63127 USA

Laumeier Sculpture Park presents Amsterdam-based artist Ahmet Öğüt in an exhibition of works from 2005-2010 in his first one-person exhibition in the Midwestern United States. The selection of works represents the range of Öğüt’s interests—from the creation, and destruction, of public space to the subtleties of the urban environment. The exhibition, which opens October 23, will illustrate the breadth and depth of the artist’s exploration of the collective creation of shared space. Laumeier visitors will experience the artist’s sly humor as he probes and pokes at the boundaries of social barriers and cultural norms.
