Opening Tuesday, November 12th, from 6PM - 8PM
Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle (MFA 1989) is a conceptual artist working across media to create works that challenge our notions of the political and cultural. He is internationally recognized for his activist-inspired public art and studio-based works. His work currently regards the inversion of utopia, the fabrication of war, and the hypersonic re-entry of modernism. He has received numerous awards including fellowships from the Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, and a United States Artists Guthman Fellowship. Manglano-Ovalle has presented major projects at SITE Santa Fe, New Mexico; Power Plant Contemporary, Toronto; KW Institute for Contemporary Art–Kunst-Werke, Berlin; Art Institute of Chicago; Musée D’Art Contemporain de Montréal; Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art; Documenta (13), Kassel, Germany; Krefelder Kunstmuseen, Krefeld Barcelona Pavilion, Mies van der Rohe Foundation, Barcelona; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and Bilbao; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. He currently holds a professorship for Art Theory & Practice at Northwestern University.
