Luchita Hurtado: I Live I Die I Will Be Reborn
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents Luchita Hurtado: I Live I Die I Will Be Reborn, the first exhibition in the United States to showcase the remarkable eight-decade career of ninety-nine-year-old artist Luchita Hurtado (Venezuela, b. 1920). Prior to 2016, the breadth of Hurtado’s artistic practice was largely unknown, as her works were kept in storage and out of public view for most of her life. The exhibition traces Hurtado’s forays into abstraction, experiments with language, engagements with nature and ecology, and, most significantly, her persistent recourse to self-portraiture and the human figure.
