Artists

Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle

Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, born in Madrid in 1961, is a conceptual artist working across different mediums to create works that focus on issues of identity, class, and the role of the individual in a multiethnic, technologically changing society. His work is concerned with the transformative forces and systems of both socially constructed and naturally occurring phenomena. This focus often leads to his collaboration with scientists, architects, writers, and composers, allowing him to create technically complex and systematically aesthetic objects. Earlier works primarily delved into such socio-political aspects as migration and immigration, ethnicity, and urban development. More recently, his work has been centred on genomic and meteorological aspects, while continuing to invoke questions around race, identity, and the potential and moral ambiguities of modern technology, such as genetic engineering, astrophysics, or the use of computers in contemporary architecture.

Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle has received numerous awards including a United States Artists Guthman Fellowship (2011), a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship (2009), and a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Award (2001), as well as a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts (1995). He is Professor at the School of Art and Design, University of Illinois, Chicago. Notable solo exhibitions include the Ernst Schering Foundation, Berlin (2013), the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum (2012), The Power Plant (2011), MASS MoCA (2010), Berkeley Museum of Art (2009), Sala Parpalló in Valencia (2009), the Art Institute of Chicago (2005), Museum Haus Esters and Haus Lange, Krefeld (2005), El Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey and Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City (2004), “la Caixa” Foundation, Madrid (2003), and Barcelona Pavilion, Fundación Mies van der Rohe, Barcelona (2002). Manglano-Ovalle has taken part in many group exhibitions, including the Ludwig Forum, Aachen (2016), Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (2015), Orlando Museum of Art (2015), Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2013), Carré d’Art  Musée d’Art Contemporain, Nîmes (2013), Frankfurter Kunstverein (2013), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (2012), KW Institute for Contemporary Art (2011), Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (2010), Documenta (2007), Liverpool Biennial (2004; 2006), Solomon R.

Biography and Concept

Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, born in Madrid in 1961, is a conceptual artist working across different mediums to create works that focus on issues of identity, class, and the role of the individual in a multiethnic, technologically changing society. His work is concerned with the transformative forces and systems of both socially constructed and naturally occurring phenomena. This focus often leads to his collaboration with scientists, architects, writers, and composers, allowing him to create technically complex and systematically aesthetic objects. Earlier works primarily delved into such socio-political aspects as migration and immigration, ethnicity, and urban development. More recently, his work has been centred on genomic and meteorological aspects, while continuing to invoke questions around race, identity, and the potential and moral ambiguities of modern technology, such as genetic engineering, astrophysics, or the use of computers in contemporary architecture.

Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle has received numerous awards including a United States Artists Guthman Fellowship (2011), a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship (2009), and a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Award (2001), as well as a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts (1995). He is Professor at the School of Art and Design, University of Illinois, Chicago. Notable solo exhibitions include the Ernst Schering Foundation, Berlin (2013), the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum (2012), The Power Plant (2011), MASS MoCA (2010), Berkeley Museum of Art (2009), Sala Parpalló in Valencia (2009), the Art Institute of Chicago (2005), Museum Haus Esters and Haus Lange, Krefeld (2005), El Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey and Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City (2004), “la Caixa” Foundation, Madrid (2003), and Barcelona Pavilion, Fundación Mies van der Rohe, Barcelona (2002). Manglano-Ovalle has taken part in many group exhibitions, including the Ludwig Forum, Aachen (2016), Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (2015), Orlando Museum of Art (2015), Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2013), Carré d’Art  Musée d’Art Contemporain, Nîmes (2013), Frankfurter Kunstverein (2013), Haus der Kulturen der Welt (2012), KW Institute for Contemporary Art (2011), Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (2010), Documenta (2007), Liverpool Biennial (2004; 2006), Solomon R.
