Luchita Hurtado

A celebration of Luchita Hurtado’s (1920–2020) fascinating life, this opulent book features an intimate conversation between the artist and curator, Hans Ulrich Obrist alongside extensive material unearthed from the studio’s vast archive of never-before-seen photographs and artworks.

The text traces Hurtado’s incredible biography from where it began in Venezuela, to New York, Mexico, and finally to California, where she settled in 1949.

Punctuating these chapters of her story are a series of quotations from her visual world —from self-portraits and drawings of erotic encounters to photographic chronicles of her passionate engagement with family and the natural world —imparting the impressions of a life vibrantly lived.
