Cristina Iglesias’s most recent large-scale immersive work, Wet Labyrinth (with Spontaneous Landscape) (2022), is a temporary site-specific commission for the Annenberg Courtyard of the Royal Academy of Arts, London, realized two years after she was awarded the Academy’s Architecture Prize in 2020. With this latest iteration in an ongoing series since 2005, Iglesias considers the history of labyrinths and mazes, combining the artificial with the natural in a single built environment. In bustling Piccadilly, the humid labyrinth provides a welcome sanctuary for visitors this summer in which to wander, wonder, and reflect.

Landscape and Memory

June 1–December 4, 2022
Madison Square Park, New York

Cristina Iglesias unearths the forgotten geological history of Madison Square Park in a newly commissioned public art installation, Landscape and Memory. On the park’s Oval Lawn, Iglesias has created a parcours of five cast-bronze pools, embedded in the ground through which water flows in orchestrated sequences, tracing the ancient course of Cedar Creek—now submerged—to remind us of what lies beneath our feet in the cities that we construct.

On View

De la nature

Through March 19, 2023
Musée de Grenoble, France
www.museedegrenoble.fr

This exhibition, whose title translates to Of Nature, explores the work of four artists whose practices examine one of the major subjects of the twenty-first century: the relationship between humans and nature. Ecological awareness on a planetary scale is in the process of upsetting systems of thought in economics, politics, and culture. Work by Cristina Iglesias and Giuseppe Penone is included.
