Cristina
 Iglesias, Untitled (Alabaster room) (Sin título [Habitación de
alabastro]), 1993. Iron and alabaster, overall dimensions variable.
Guggenheim Bilbao Museoa

Humans inhabit the present in relation to their past and, in turn, they construct a past from their present. All buildings have a history—one private or public, individual or collective—but it is always transient, about what was lived and what was staged within them. Inhabited Architecture examines art from the permanent collections of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in order to conceive of the occupation of space as a place full of existing narratives or narratives yet to be created. Exhibiting selected collection works for the first time at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Inhabited Architecture presents Liam Gillick’s How are you going to behave? A kitchen cat speaks (2009), Doris Salcedo’s Untitled (2008), Mona Hatoum’s Home (1999), Pello Irazu’s Life Forms 304 (2003), and Cristina Iglesias’s Untitled (Alabaster Room) (Sin título [Habitación de alabastro], 1993).
