Guillermo Kuitca

Guillermo Kuitca (born 1961 in Buenos Aires, where he lives and works) is one of Latin America's leading contemporary artists. He had his first exhibition when he was 13 years old. Since the end of the 1980s he has participated in numerous exhibitions and biennials worldwide, notably at Documenta IX (1992) and at the 2007 Venice Biennale where he represented Argentina. Inspired by the worlds of architecture, theater, music, and cartography, his painting reconciles abstract styles with an illusionist form of figuration, and investigates ways in which absence, movement, and silence can be expressed on a two-dimensional surface. Inherited from his work in the theater world, notably through his collaboration with Pina Bausch, the relationships between people and space, reality and fiction are at the core of his work and his drawing practice.
