"Guillermo Kuitca is a Modernist after Modernism, without being Postmodernist, an artist who relies on painting as a mode of knowing the world through structured aesthetic form. He is a painter after painting, equally distanced from Neo-expressionist subjective outbursts as from Conceptual art; an Argentinean after Borges and after tango, but without playing a Latin American identity card; an international artist who decided to continue working in his home town of Buenos Aires rather than living exiled in the northern metropolis where his work has met with success. Contradictions upon contradictions, all of them constitutive of his protean artistic output."
Andreas Huyssen, excerpted from Guillermo Kuitca: Everything, Scala Publishers.

Guillermo Kuitca: DiariosGuillermo Kuitca: Diarios

Published by The Drawing Center.
Introduction by Brett Littman. Text by Daniel Kehlmann.

This publication accompanies the first U.S. museum exhibition of a selection of paintings by the Argentinean artist Guillermo Kuitca, made from 2005 to the present. Since 1994, Kuitca has taken failed and discarded canvases, stretched them over an abandoned table from his parentsí garden, and then spent periods of time ranging from three to six months creating intentional and accidental doodles, drawings and recordings on their surfaces. The Diarios, as the artist calls them, are the most transparently personal works in his oeuvre, as they gather residue like phone numbers, titles of paintings, email addresses, blank spots where books sat, lists and collaged elements that record the ebb and flow of life inside and outside the studio. This volume includes full-color plates and large-scale details of the 18 works in the exhibition, an introduction by curator Brett Littman and a specially commissioned essay by acclaimed German author Daniel Kehlmann.

Published by Scala Publishers.
Text by Douglas Dreishpoon, Andreas Huyssen, Terence Riley, Olga Viso. Interviews by Graciela Speranza.

The first comprehensive survey of the influential Argentinean artist's work to be published in the United States in over ten years, this volume comprises more than 50 canvases and more than 25 works on paper, spanning 25 years of Kuitca's career. Published concurrently with a major traveling exhibition, it features many previously unpublished works and series. Kuitca is most known for his delicate abstractions based on maps and architectural plans, which explore psychological dislocation and the intersection of public and private spaces. Also featured are many of Kuitca's drawings, a previously unexplored aspect of his work, that significantly influenced his approach to painting.

Guillermo KuitcaGuillermo Kuitca

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Hans-Michael Herzog, Katrin Steffen.

Argentine painter Guillermo Kuitca, born in 1961 in Buenos Aires, is widely considered one of the most important contemporary artists in South America. Architecture, theater, music and cartography play a central role in his work, where maps and blueprints are condensed into a world of poetic and territorial fantasies, and reality and fiction overlap. Whether depicting an "Acoustic Mass" at the Old Vic or a constellation map of "Heaven," in each painting or drawing collected here, Kuitca measures the world anew, shedding light on complex spatial contexts and intertwined social processes. This beautifully designed volume, the first monograph devoted to the artist, features a padded cover, black-on-black endpapers, tab separated sections and paper changes. An insightful interview by Hans-Michael Herzog leads into three distinct plate sections, followed by a biography and a bibliography. Guillermo Kuitca is represented in the United States by Sperone Westwater gallery in New York and L.A. Louver in Los Angeles.
