Guillermo Kuitca- Painting

Guillermo Kuitca: Everything—Paintings and Works on Paper, 1980-2008
Saw this amazing show at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN.
If you can see it in person.... do so.

On a side note:
Guillermo Kuitca kept painting even when painting wasn't considered cool or cutting edge... I think that old saying "painting is dead" still rings in the ears of students today, I can't even recall how many times I had to hear that cliche saying... what a bummer. This is another great painter that went on painting and as a result we are lucky enough to have his works to appreciate today.

Guillermo Kuitca, Trauerspiel, 2001, oil on canvas 77 x 133-1/4 in.

Poema pedagógico II, 1996, acrylic and graphite on canvas 74 x 75 in.


  1. p.s. Sorry about the HUGE video frame... not too sure what that's about.

  2. Nice post. Also, like the music they chose for the video, Juana Molina is pretty awesome. You can check out her story on Radio Lab. She is featured in a short http://www.wnyc.org/shows/radiolab.
