Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle

Chicago, United States

Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle is a conceptual artist working across media to create works that are formally seductive, technologically sophisticated, and conceptually rigorous. He is engaged in an investigation of how certain extraordinary forces and systems—both natural and man-made—perpetually reshape our world and challenge our notions of the political and the cultural. He has received numerous awards including the United States Artists Guthman Fellowship 2011, Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship 2009, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Award 2001, and a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts 1995. He has presented major projects at international and U.S. institutions, including most recently: SITE Santa Fe, New Mexico 2014, 2012; Christopher Grimes Gallery, Santa Monica 2015, 2012; Ernst Schering Foundation, Berlin 2013; The Art Institute of Chicago 2011; The Power Plant, Toronto 2011; Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art 2009; and Documenta XII, Kassel 2007. He is professor and chair of Art Theory & Practice at Northwestern University.
