Award-winning sculptor Jaume Plensa permanently installed seven new large-scale sculptures at The City of Arts and Sciences, Valencia Institute. As part of a recent exhibition, the monumental outdoor artworks feature giant, cast iron heads of varying female subjects. The Barcelona-based artist is known for sculpting larger-than-life pieces that portray human body parts and letters. One of his more recent sculptures made its debut at the first Frieze Sculpture installment at Rockefeller Center in New York City this past April.

In other dynamic presentations, David Lynch recently launched a retrospective in Manchester entitled “My Head is Disconnected.”
