Descripción del Artista

Con una amplia carrera pictórica, Kuitca se adentra en paisajes urbanos oscuros y desoladores en los que la imagen reflexiona y se cuestiona a ella misma acerca de sus usos y estado. Su obra sobrevuela mapas de plantas arquitectónicas y cartografías urbanísticas intervenidas, abstrayendo la imagen de manera que excede su función de informar y situar para más bien deslocalizar y re-contextualizar. Diferentes fragmentos de diversos orígenes se unen de nuevo para formar otro punto de referencia alejado de sus fuentes y, así, recrear una ficticia memoria emocional. ---------------------------------------------- Born in 1961 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he lives, Guillermo Kuitca is one of Latin America’s leading contemporary artists. Inspired by the worlds of architecture, theater and cartography, his work has transcended geographical boundaries and has been exhibited extensively around the world. In 1989 Kuitca began to receive significant international attention when he represented Argentina in the XVIII São Paulo Biennial. In 1991 he was selected for a “Projects” show at The Museum of Modern Art in New York which traveled to the Newport Harbor Art Museum in California, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston. Kuitca’s 1992 installation of painted maps-on-mattresses at Documenta IX was also a breakthrough on the international forum. Kuitca’s early shows include a solo exhibition at the Instituto de Arte Moderno (IVAM) in Valencia, Spain (1993), and a survey at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, OH, which traveled to the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London (1994-1995). In 2000 he exhibited at the Fondation Cartier in Paris. In 2003 the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid presented a retrospective of Kuitca’s works covering the period 1983-2003, which traveled to the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano in Buenos Aires (MALBA). In 2006, the Daros Latinamerica Foundation, Zurich, presented “Das Lied von der Erde”, a survey of Kuitca paintings and drawings. In 2007 Kuitca represented Argentina at the Venice Biennale at the Ateneo Veneto and was also included in the overall Biennale exhibition curated by Robert Storr, “Think with the Senses-Feel with the Mind, Art in the Present Tense.” The Miami Art Museum premiered a comprehensive retrospective, “Guillermo Kuitca: Everything, Paintings and Works on Paper, 1980-2008,” which traveled to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C. (2009-2011). In 2013, the Drawing Center presented Guillermo Kuitca: Diarios, which traveled to the Broad Art Museum, East Lansing, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (2012-2013). In July 2014, the major retrospective “Guillermo Kuitca: Philosophy for Princesses” opened at the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo, the most important regional museum in Brazil. Consisting of nearly 50 works from 1980 to 2013, this exhibition included his largest installation to date, Le Sacre (1992), a celebrated work featuring 54 beds and newly acquired by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Kuitca had his first solo exhibition at Sperone Westwater gallery in 1993, where he continues to exhibit regularly (1994, 1995, 1997, 1999, 2002, 2005, 2010, and 2014). Kuitca’s work is in museum collections worldwide.
