Guillermo Kuitca
Guillermo Kuitca (Argentinian, 1961-) Guillermo Kuitca began his thirty-five year career at the age of 13 with his first solo show at the Lirolay Gallery in Buenos Aires. Kuitca, a modern cartographer, finds inspiration in everything from seating charts, architectural plans, and road maps to baggage claim carousels and beds, exploring the intersections between public and private space. By depicting locations, buildings and spaces as empty of human presence and dislocated from proper context, Kuitca allows the viewer to question where they fit in the world at large. Kuitca’s work is held in museum collection’s across the world, including the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam among many others.,h_400,c_fill/eefs8jtrmetn99h8whbv.jpg
