The first comprehensive retrospective of Guillermo Kuitca's art to travel in the United States in more than 10 years examines over two decades of the artist's paintings and includes approximately 45 canvases and 20 works on paper made between 1980 and 2008. Since his first exhibition at age 13, Kuitca (Argentinean, b. Buenos Aires, 1961) has forged a distinctive path as an artist. On view are early works inspired by his experience in theater to recent complex abstractions that evoke the history of modern painting.
