Marian Goodman Gallery is pleased to continue our artist-centric newsletter IN FOCUS, where we take the time to delve deeply into one artist on the MGG roster at a time. Aiming to show a fuller picture of the breadth of our artists' careers, we will feature our favorite stories, podcasts, interviews, artists’ writings and videos from the archive, as well as new and upcoming projects.

Throughout her career, Spanish artist Cristina Iglesias (b. November 1956) has defined a unique sculptural vocabulary, building immersive and experiential environments that reference and unite architecture, literature, and culturally site-specific influences. Through a language of constructed and natural forms rendered in various materials and ranging from suspended pavilions, latticed panels, passageways, and mazes, to walls imbued with texts and structural and vegetative forms, she poetically redefines space by confounding interior and exterior, organic and artifice, combining industrial materials with natural elements to produce unexpected new sensory sites for the viewer.

Today, follow along as we explore all facets of Iglesias’ practice, taking a look at both recent and past sculptural projects. ↓

WE ARE LISTENING TO...


The National Gallery of Art’s October 26, 2018 symposium where Lynne Cooke speaks with Cristina Iglesias about her sculptures and site-specific installations, both massive and cryptic. Iglesias plunges viewers of her work into an unfamiliar world that seems to predate—and may outlast—recorded time.
