Guillermo Kuitca Bio

About The Artist

One of the most prominent contemporary artists from Latin America, the Argentine Guillermo Kuitca makes haunting paintings of stadiums, airports, theaters, and other public spaces. Borrowing imagery from maps, floor plans, and seating charts, his works balance geometric abstraction with allusions to specific places and experiences.

Global unrest and mass refugee crises are two themes that lend urgency to Kuitca's articulation of the human condition. Formulating a politics of space, his conceptual art demonstrates a lifetime of interest in notions of migration and circulation, borders and frontiers, private and public space.

Since emerging in the early 1990s he has had solo shows at institutions including the Miami Art Museum, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Santiago, and has exhibited regularly at Sperone Westwater in New York and Hauser & Wirth in London and Zurich. In 2007, he represented Argentina in the Venice Biennial, and in 1985 he represented his country in the São Paulo Biennial. In 2009 he designed the stage curtain for the Winspear Opera House in Dallas, Texas.
