Les Citoyens, Uno sguardo di Guillermo Kuitca sulla collezione della Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain

42 €

Presented at Triennale Milano from May 6 to September 12, 2021, Les Citoyens is Argentinian painter Guillermo Kuitca’s third foray into the Fondation Cartier collection, continuing the exhibitions Les Habitants presented at the Fondation Cartier in Paris in 2014 and Les Visitants at the CCK in Buenos Aires in 2017. Through 120 works of 28 artists, including paintings, drawings, photographs, installations, sculptures, and videos, Les Citoyens shines a light on the Fondation Cartier, on its unique way of working with artists and its long-term commitment to them, as well as on its curiosity about different geographies and its awareness of today’s most important global issues.

The catalog Les Citoyens presents the works of the 28 artists of the exhibition. Conceived in close collaboration with Guillermo Kuitca, and including a text by the artist, this publication retraces each of his three immersions into the Fondation Cartier collection, explaining his approach as both an artist and director. Richly illustrated, it takes you through the exhibition, revealing the visual connections established by Guillermo Kuitca between the artists and their works. Short texts on each of the artists offer an in-depth look at the creation of their works and their history with the Fondation Cartier.

Guillermo Kuitca

Born in 1961 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he lives and works, Guillermo Kuitca began painting at an early age and had his first solo exhibition in 1974. In the 1980s, he developed a series of themes - architecture, theater, cartography - which have since then become the major focus of his work. Theater scenes, blueprints of theaters, road maps, pieces of furniture, compose a personal geography associating public spaces and intimate spheres, physical, mental or emotional territories.
