Guillermo Kuitca

Raphael Rubinstein



  • The first monograph to examine the entire career of Argentinian artist Guillermo Kuitca (b.1961)
  • Kuitca has exhibited his work internationally, including at Documenta, the Venice Biennale (representing Argentina) and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, including MOMA, New York, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Tate Modern, London and CaixaForum, Barcelona


This book presents a detailed account of Guillermo Kuitca's major bodies of work, analysing his diverse range of imagery and reflecting on his engagement with the spaces in which we live.

Following Kuitca’s development from the 1980s to his latest body of work, the narrative reveals an artist who has continually challenged himself and his audience with new kinds of painterly language. In Kuitca’s hands, everyday visual material such as road maps, street plans, architectural blueprints and theatre seating charts are transformed into remarkable paintings. Their impact comes from their apparent engagement with dark subjects such as the Holocaust and Argentina’s 'Dirty War,' as well as the artist’s innovative imagery and techniques.

Drawing on conversations and studio visits the author has had with the artist, Guillermo Kuitca reveals the multifarious elements of a challenging and exciting body of work. It is essential reading for anyone fascinated by this truly original artist.
