Ugo Rondinone (Swiss, b. 1964) lives and works in New York. He has long embraced a fluid range of forms and media. As a whole, his work constitutes a complex network of responses to social and physical structures. By allowing himself such formal and thematic freedom, Rondinone creates the conditions for an expansive emotional range. His work has become recognised for its ability to channel both psychological expressiveness and profound insight in the human condition and the relationship between human being and nature. Recent solo exhibitions include naturaleza humana, Museo Anahuacalli, Coyoacan, Mexico, 2014; thank you silence, M Museum, Leuven, Belgium, 2013; we run through a desert on burning feet, all of us are glowing our faces look twisted, Art Institute of Chicago, 2013; human nature, Public Art Fund, Rockefeller Plaza, New York, 2013; primitive, Common Guild, Glasgow, 2012; nude, Museum of Cycladic Art, Athens, 2012; and The Night of Lead (Die Nacht aus Blei), Aargauer Kunsthaus, Aarau, Switzerland, 2010. This October, Rondinone's exhibition I ♥ John Giorno opens at Palais de Tokyo, Paris; forthcoming solo exhibitions in 2016 include Vocabulary of Solitude, Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam; Becoming Soil, Carré d'Art, Nimes; and Present Tense, Museo d'Arte Contemporanea, Rome. In early 2016, his public outdoor installation, Seven Magic Mountains, will open in the Nevada desert, co-produced by New York's Art Production Fund and Nevada Museum of Art, Reno (NE).
