Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle (b. 1961 in Madrid) is a conceptual artist working across media to create works that challenge our notions of the political and  the cultural. His work currently regards the inversion of utopia, the fabrication of war, and the hypersonic re-entry of Modernism.

He has received numerous awards, including a United States Artists Guthman Fellowship 2011; a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship 2009, and a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Award 2001. Manglano-Ovalle has presented major projects at SITE Santa Fe, New Mexico 2014, 2012; Ernst Schering Foundation, Berlin, Germany 2013, Christopher Grimes Gallery, Santa Monica 2015; The Power Plant Contemporary, Toronto 2011; KW Institute for Contemporary Art – Kunst-Werke, Berlin 2011; The Art Institute of Chicago 2011; Musée D’Art Contemporain de Montréal 2010; Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art 2009; Documenta XII, Kassel 2007; Krefelder Kunstmuseen, Krefeld, 2006; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago 2006; The 9th International Exhibition of Architecture, La Biennale di Venezia 2004; Barcelona Pavilion, Mies van der Rohe Foundation, Barcelona 2002; the Guggenheim Museum, New York and Bilbao 2002, 2003; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, New York 2001; and MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Schindler House 2001.
