The Directors of Marlborough Gallery are pleased to announce an exhibition of sculptures by the Spanish-born, world-renowned artist Santiago Calatrava.

About

This will be Mr. Calatrava’s first solo exhibition with Marlborough Gallery since 2014, and the first presentation of his artworks in New York since 2015 when seven memorable sculptures— large-scale works in painted aluminum and stainless steel—were installed on Park Avenue.

Santiago Calatrava’s broad oeuvre includes drawings, paintings, ceramics and sculpture in addition to his celebrated architecture and engineering projects. Viewed as a complex whole, Calatrava’s works express a unified aesthetic anchored in the artist’s continuing exploration of the relationship between the origins of creativity and the evolutionary structure of the natural world. In the words of Professor Kosme de Barañano, the artist is “interested in the unraveling of forms in space, in the tension that defines time in sculpture.”

Flight, both as a gravity-defying feat and as a metaphor for freedom and the power of humanity, is a prevailing concern for Calatrava. His creations begin with drawings—often a bird beginning to soar or a dancing form embarking on a leap—and the resulting sculptures are elegantly abstracted records of a kind of magical movement. His sculptures twist the air around them and convey a graceful permanence.
