Daniel Canogar

Born in Madrid (1964) to a Spanish father and an American mother, Daniel Canogar’s life and career have bridged between Spain and the U.S.

Photography was his earliest medium of choice, receiving a M.A. from NYU at the International Center of photography in 1990, but he soon became interested in the possibilities of the projected image and installation art.

He has created public art installations with LED screens, including Dynamo, a site-specific audiovisual project designed for the Spanish Pavilion in Dubai Expo 2020 (Dubai, 2021); Currents, a suspended artwork in the atrium of the renovated Evangelische Bank (Kassel, 2020); Tendril for Tampa InternationalAirport (Tampa, FL, 2017) and Cannula, Xylem and Gust II at BBVA Bank Headquarters (Madrid, 2018). He has also created public monumental artworks in different mediums such as Oculus, a generative animation featured on Novartis Pavillon zero-media façade (Basel, Switzerland, 2022); generative video-projections projected on the Phillips Collection and the Museo Nacional del Prado façades’ and created with the painting collections of both institutions; Fulgurations, a project in collaboration with the Spanish National Cancer Research Center - CNIO (Madrid, 2021);  and Constellations, the largest photo-mosaic in Europe, which was created for two pedestrian bridges over the Manzanares River, in Madrid Río Park (Madrid,2010). His work Storming Times Square was screened on 47 of the LED billboards in Times Square (New York, NY, 2014).

He has exhibited extensively in major museums and galleries across the world including ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe; Reina Sofia Contemporary Art Museum, Madrid; Borusan Contemporary Museum, Istanbul; American Museum of Natural History, New York; Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh; Wilde Gallery, Geneva and Basel; Galerie Anita Beckers, Frankfurt; Kornfeld Gallery, Berlin and Eduardo Secci Contemporary, Florence.
