Obscura Day 2016: Laumeier Sculpture Park

Join us for the opening exhibition tour of Gigi Scaria: Time.

This Obscura Day, join Laumeier Sculpture Park’s Curator of Exhibitions Dana Turkovic and spring/summer 2016 exhibition artist Gigi Scaria for a tour of the indoor/outdoor exhibition "Gigi Scaria: Time" and a selection of Indian teas and sweets at the public exhibition opening.

"Gigi Scaria: Time" is a multimedia exhibition consisting of recent photographs, films and a large sculpture inside the Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center, plus an outdoor commission in Laumeier’s Museum Circle. The New Delhi-based artist’s work focuses on “social mapping”—whether territorial, cultural, environmental or of the hierarchies and systems of our global communities. With "Gigi Scaria: Time," he explores the layers of ancient cultures as they get subsumed in the world’s mega-cities and reflects on the unique form of city-building that exists in St. Louis by cross-pollinating the disappearing architecture and symbols from New Delhi with the Woodhenge at Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site.

Laumeier’s Conversation Series provides informal learning opportunities through discussion about new artworks in the temporary exhibitions or legacy artworks in the Permanent Collection. Conversation Series events encourage participants to share ideas and ask questions in a relaxed atmosphere.

Saturday, April 16; 11:00am - 1:00pm
Ticket Cost: Free; but RSVP is encouraged
