Press Release

For Frieze Masters 2018, Sperone Westwater presents a focused installation of paintings by Argentine artist Guillermo Kuitca. These works highlight Kuitca's use of cartography within his artistic practice, ranging from apartment floorplans through geographical mapping and back again to architectural diagrams, including seating plans for classrooms and theatres.

In 1989 Kuitca began to receive significant international attention when he represented Argentina in the XVIII São Paulo Biennial. One of his early solo exhibitions was a "Projects" show at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1991, and his first survey was presented by the Wexner Center for the Arts and the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1994-1995. Kuitca's first retrospective took place at the Reina Sofía, Madrid, and MALBA, Buenos Aires (2003). Subsequent retrospectives have been held at the Miami Art Museum, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Walker Art Center, and Hirshhorn Museum (2009-2011); and at the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo (2014). In 2007 he represented Argentina at the Venice Biennale.

Kuitca's work is in museum collections worldwide, including Art Institute of Chicago, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Dallas Museum of Art, Daros Collection, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, La Caixa, Hirshhorn Museum, MALBA, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Museum of Modern Art, Museum Voorlinden, Reina Sofía, Stedelijk Museum, Tate, and Walker Art Center.
