Guillermo Kuitca: Everything—Paintings and Works on Paper, 1980–2008                October 21, 2010 to January 16, 2011 
Since his first exhibition at the age of thirteen, Guillermo Kuitca (Argentinean, b. Buenos Aires, 1961) has forged a distinctive path as an artist, creating visually compelling works that reflect his intense and often ambivalent relationship to his primary medium: painting. “Guillermo Kuitca: Everything” is the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s work in the United States in more than ten years, and is co-organized by the Hirshhorn; Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY; and the Miami Art Museum. Examining the artist’s continuing development between 1980 and 2008, the show presents the spectrum of Kuitca’s thirty-five year career, from early pieces inspired by his experience in theater, with titles often drawn from music, to recent complex abstractions that evoke the history of modern painting.
Guillermo Kuitca: Everything, Paintings and Works on Paper, 1980-2008 is co-organized by Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; and Miami Art Museum, Miami, Florida.
