Cristina Iglesias, Pabellón Suspendido III (Los sueños), 2011-2016.
The exhibition shows twenty-three works by Cristina Iglesias, the internationally renowned artist from San Sebastián, widely recognised for the complexity and quality of her work. The retrospective, curated by Vicente Todolí, offers a poetic view of the world, rendering a new dimension of the landscape using industrial materials. Specifically for Centro Botín, the artist created the permanent sculpture “Desde lo subterráneo” [From the Underground]. Moreover, in September she will be giving the next Fundación Botín Visual Arts Workshop. Iglesias’ last big exhibition in Spain was at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in 2013; therefore this show provides a marvellous opportunity to look back at her career as well as discover her more recent works.
