Born in Venezuela, Hurtado moved to the United States
at the age of eight, and then travelled across Mexico. Highly experimental and typified by bold uses of colour, Hurtado's abstract works and landscapes reflect this eclectic upbringing.
Inspired by the first
images of Earth from space in 1946, Hurtado’s art explores the
interconnectivity of human beings and nature. Her work is renowned for exploring unusual perspectives and for its continued relevance to political and environmental issues. This exhibition offers visitors the chance to trace the history of Hurtado's career and see how her artistic trajectory has developed over the years.
Now at the age of 97, Luchita Hurtado has a large body of work, which captures a broad swathe of time and emotion. This exhibition
offers a great opportunity to see it all together for the first time.
