Anish Kapoor


Born in 1954 in Mumbai, Anish Kapoor is internationally recognized as one of today’s leading contemporary artists. Since representing Britain at the 44th Venice Biennale in 1990, where he was awarded the Premio Duemila, and winning the Tate Britain's prestigious Turner Prize in 1991, he has held major solo exhibitions globally and his work is permanently exhibited in some of the most important international collections and museums.

Increasingly renowned for artworks that blur the boundary between architecture and sculpture, many of his public works have become iconic landmarks. Large-scale public projects include “Cloud Gate” (2004) in Millennium Park, Chicago; “Dismemberment Site I” (2003–2009) at Gibbs Farm Sculpture Park, Kaipara Bay, Auckland, New Zealand; “Ark Nova,” (2013) the world's first inflatable concert hall in Japan; and, most recently, Traiano and Monte Sant’Angelo Metro Stations in Naples, Italy (2024).

Recent solo exhibitions include Palazzo Strozzi, Florence (2023–2024); Gallerie dell’Accademia e Palazzo Manfrin, Venice (2022); Central Academy of Fine Arts and the Imperial Ancestral Temple, Beijing (2019); Fundación Proa, Buenos Aires (2019); Fundação de Serralves, Museu de Arte Contemporânea, Porto, Portugal (2018); University Museum of Contemporary Art (MUAC), Mexico City (2016); Palace of Versailles, France (2015); the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center, Moscow (2015); and the Gropius Bau, Berlin (2013).

A solo exhibition of his work, “Anish Kapoor: Unseen,” is currently on display at ARKEN Museum of Modern Art, Ishøj, Denmark, until October 20, 2024.

Mr. Kapoor lives and works in London and Venice.
