In celebration of the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis building constructed ten years ago, CAM is presenting an exhibit focusing on the design of the building itself: "Place Is the Space." The exhibit is a collaboration of the building's architect, Brad Cloepfil, and the museum's chief curator, Dominic Molon.
"It's a great space for artists," said Molon of the building. "Ten years on it still remains an incredibly flexible building."
Among the artists contributing to the exhibit is sculptor Inigo Manglano-Ovalle. He has a piece build of cedar called Di Huto, or The Hut, and a piece mimicing a beehive.
"I wanted to respond to the different volumes of the building and insert architecture within the architecture of the building," said Manglano-Ovalle.
There will be five artists with pieces in the exhibition, including Manglano-Ovalle.
