Visiting Artist Lecture
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.
VAS SOCIAL HOUR: Join SFAI for a reception in the Café from 6:30–7:30 pm before the lecture.
