Published by Rochester Art Center. Edited by Kris Douglas. Foreword by Denise Sorom. Text by Kris Douglas, Claire Barliant, Yasmil Raymond.
The Chicago-based artist Iņigo Manglano-Ovalle is immersed in an ongoing critical investigation of the diverse conditions, systems and histories that define and describe our existence. He digs deep, often collaborating with specialists in such fields as engineering, architecture, genomics and climatology to produce engaging art objects, videos and installations that take on subjects like identity, ethics, aesthetics, climate and other social and political systems. This concise clothbound catalogue contains blue and red acetate inserts to recall the tinted windows at his recent Rochester Art Center exhibition, as well as an in-depth interview with Yasmil Raymond of the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. Iņigo Manglano-Ovalle has had solo exhibitions at The Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and has participated in such important group exhibitions as the 2000 Whitney Biennial, the Guggenheim Museum's 2002 Moving Pictures and 2007's Documenta 12 in Kassel, Germany. He was featured on the PBS series Art 21 in the fall of 2007.

Manglano-Ovalle has domesticated icebergs, inviting them into two Mies van der Rohe villas in Krefeld, Germany. The houses appear here decorated in matched sets of color photographs of those floating, melting monuments, and identical sculptures based on them. For good measure, the furniture is covered with white cloth: icebergs in the middle of the rooms.
