Guillermo Kuitca: Philosophy for Princesses: Works 1980-2013, 17 July to 2 November 2014

£45.00

Product description

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 Biennal. 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 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 includes his largest installation to date, Le Sacre (1992), a celebrated work featuring 54 beds and newly acquired by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
