Solo exhibition, open from October 6th to March 3rd, 2018.
Curator: Vicente Todolí, President of the Visual Arts Advisory Committee at Fundación Botín.
"A recipient of Spain’s National Visual Arts Award in 1999, Cristina Iglesias (San Sebastián, 1956) is an internationally renowned Spanish artist. This exhibition consists of a huge collection of pieces that will be on display on the second floor of the west wing of the Centro Botín. Well-known for her sculptural pieces with hanging pavilions, latticework, corridors and labyrinths, Iglesias combines industrial materials and natural elements to create unusual, experiential spaces."
Permanent piece, opening on March 14th, 2018.
As stated by the Director of the Per Amor a l’Art foundation, Susana Lloret: “The art centre expands its exhibition space into the environment: the garden, and even the Marxalenes park, are now open to visitors. The garden is surrounded by magic sounds and the reflexion of the water of Cristina Iglesias’s work, by the light and colour of our privileged nature, and by the medieval history of the cellar we have brought back along with other ruins from the same period located in the Marxalenes park, a few minutes from Bombas Gens”. - Bombas Gens Centre d'Art
Solo exhibition, open from January 9 to February 10, 2018.
"Throughout her career, Iglesias 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, mazes, to walls inbued 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." – Read full press release here

“Pensar en una ficción de un jardín que existe ahora mismo debajo del que vemos, es una idea poética que nos lleva a reflexionar sobre la idea de que la vida surge de abajo, aunque la tapemos vuelve a salir” – Cristina Iglesias sobre su intervención escultórica “Desde lo subterráneo”, diseñada para el entorno del #CentroBotín, #CristinaIglesias, #LaVozDe, @cristinaiglesiasestudio. ©Luis Asin
"La Casa del Faro se convertirá en una escultura pública, que recree de forma figurada el fondo de la Bahía de la Concha, además de reflejar los cambios que producen las mareas."

"This spring, see the vibrant world between black and white. Join us for Gray Matters, a multifaceted survey of 37 contemporary women artists who have explored the practice of grisaille —the French term for working in shades of gray. Ranging from emerging to well-established, these artists challenge an all-too-simplistic notion of colorless “neutrality” as they reveal the variegated spectrum of black, white, gray, and everything in between."
—Wexner Center for the Arts

The Spanish artist’s contribution to the Portable Art Project comprises three unique aluminum pieces of ‘body armor’ that encircle the hip, shoulder, and wrist, respectively."
