Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle is an internationally recognized conceptual artist known for his activist-inspired public works. Producing across multiple media, Manglano-Ovalle creates technologically advanced pieces that crystallize complex political and cultural narratives into iconic, beautiful form—a thundercloud, an iceberg, Mies van der Rohe’s architecture, or the 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, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a MacArthur Foundation Award. Major recent projects have been presented at SITE Santa Fe; The Power Plant, Toronto; MASS MoCA; and Documenta 12, Kassel, Germany.
