Description

Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle is an internationally recognized conceptual artist known

for his activist-inspired public works. Manglano-Ovalle creates technologically

advanced pieces that crystallize complex political and cultural narratives into iconic,

beautiful forms—a thundercloud, an iceberg, Mies van der Rohe’s architecture,

or a fictitious Iraqi mobile biological weapons truck. His work prompts singular

experiences from inverted utopias, refabricated images of war, and the insurgence

of Modernism. Manglano-Ovalle’s numerous awards include a United States Artists

Fellowship and a MacArthur Foundation Award.
