Family Studio Workshop: Dioramas Inspired by Guillermo Kuitca

  • Sun 11 August 2019
  • 12 pm – 3 pm

Play with light and shape in this month’s Family Studio Workshop by creating your own diorama. Participants will transform cardboard boxes using paper and cellophane to create miniature dioramas that produce illusions similar to Guillermo Kuitca’s ‘Retablo’ installation on view in the Education Loft. This workshop will be led by Chloe Pang. This drop-in activity is free, however, reservations are recommended. Click here to register. About ‘Guillermo Kuitca’ Hauser & Wirth is pleased to present the gallery’s first Los Angeles exhibition with acclaimed Argentine artist Guillermo Kuitca. The exhibition includes new pieces that build upon Kuitca’s long-standing involvement with the dramatic arts through an idiosyncratic integration of architectural features in two-dimensional space. ‘Retablo’ (2016), the sole sculptural work on view, imbues Kuitca’s signature geometric abstractions with spiritual undertones. Lit from within, this small, inaccessible, altar-like cove is ornamented by a panel painting covered with rhythmic slashes. Kuitca’s thicket of painterly marks is interrupted only by a perspectival road extending into the depths of the picture plane – an imaginary path leading to an unknowable realm.
