Oscar Tuazon‘s sculptural works made in collaboration with artists and writers Ariana Reines, Matias Faldbakken, Elias Hansen, and Vito Acconci are now on view at the Bellevue Arts Museum—Tuazon’s first solo museum show in his native Washington State.

The exhibition—COLLABORATOR—also includes work in honor of Leonard Peltier, and “new sculptures and site-responsive interventions that respond, in part, to the porous, light-filled nature of architect Steven Holl‘s design” for the museum’s third floor galleries.*
