23.11.2017Thomas Struth at the Saint Louis Art Museum

A new exhibition at the Saint Louis Art Museum celebrates the work of German artist Thomas Struth. Running until 21 January 2018, Thomas Struth: Nature and Politics showcases large-scale photographs including those of industrial and scientific workspaces alongside images of the politically contested landscape of the Israeli-occupied West Bank. The exhibition is on display in the museum’s East Wing which was completed by David Chipperfield Architects in 2013. The works are hung on a series of full height internal walls, following the module of the concrete coffered ceiling grid that spans the entire exhibition hall. A secondary system of lower freestanding walls are arranged within the rooms at varying angles, disrupting the regular grid arrangement.
