INTERNATIONAL LECTURE SERIES / Iņigo Manglano-Ovalle
Madrid-born, Chicago-based artist Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, whose works Phantom Truck + Always After are currently on view at The Power Plant, discusses his internationally renowned practice. With a marked formal elegance, Manglano-Ovalle’s sculptural, installation and video works have explored such phenomena as the War on Terror, migration and climate change; he is also known for his video works employing the architecture of Mies van der Rohe as frameworks to reflect on modernism.
