Iván Navarro (b. 1972) has lived and worked in New York since 1997. Navarro uses light as his raw material, turning objects into electric sculptures and transforming the exhibition space by means of visual interplay. His work is certainly playful, but is also haunted by questions of power, control and imprisonment. The act of usurping the minimalist aesthetic is an ever-present undercurrent, becoming the pretext for understated political and social criticism.

Navarro represented Chile at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009. Over recent years, his work
has been shown worldwide: Bifocal, Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, Buenos Aires (2019); This
Land is Your Land, Crystal Bridges Museum, USA (2019); This Land is Your Land, solo, Busan Museum, Korea; Age of Terror, Imperial War Museum, London (2018); Light and Space, Guggenheim Bilbao, Spain (2017); Art Basel Parcours, Switzerland; Yinchuan Biennale, China (2016); Under the Same Sun, South London Gallery (2016 and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, 2014); Storylines, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2015); Light Show, Hayward Gallery, London and Sharjah Art Foundation, Sharjah (2013 - 2016). His art features in many international collections, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York), the Fonds National d’Art Contemporain (Paris) and The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington, DC). He has been represented by Galerie Templin since 2005.
