Description Published in association with Museu Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofiá. Summary This book will survey the broad range of Cristina Iglesias's work from its beginnings in the mid-1980s until the present. In addition to focusing on sculptures made for museum and gallery contexts, it will reference Iglesias's various and much acclaimed public pieces and the accompanying films series, the "Guided Tours." The catalogue, which includes models, drawings and sketchbooks, will trace the evolution and realisation of several ambitious site specific projects. In addition, it will present a comprehensive overview of Iglesias's silk-screen works on both copper and cloth. Examining the substantial contribution that Iglesias has made to sculpture as a contemporary art form, both public and private, the book's five essays focus on a variety of key subjects: Iglesias's way of understanding sculpture as visualized thought; her use of water as a material in sculpture; her references to fine art traditions; dialogues with architecture; and her public commissions. Biography Lynne Cooke is Andrew W. Mellon Professor at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts at the National Gallery of Art. Formerly, she was the chief curator and deputy director of the Museo Reina Sofia and curator at Dia Art Foundation.
