Though Pablo Bronstein's particular visual language is diverse in medium and style, it is fundamentally rooted in the discipline of architecture. His drawings, sculptures, books, installations, and performances are all uniquely informed by period designs and quintessential historical buildings—the Italian baroque, French neo-classicism, and 20th century modernism and postmodernism are evidenced alike throughout Bronstein’s beautiful and subtle oeuvre. Acting as artist-architect, Bronstein imagines and plans his structures with the specific intention of exploring not only the demarcation of private and public spaces but also quietly critiquing the social and political elements that play into realizing magnificent feats of civil engineering.
Bronstein has had solo exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Institute of Contemporary Art in London, Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen, Tate Britain in London, Galleria Franco Noero in Turin, Herald St in London, and Lenbachhaus in Munich. His work has also been included in London’s Tate Triennial, New York’s Performa 07, and Spain’s Manifesta 8.
