Luchita Hurtado

In the final years of her life, Luchita Hurtado engaged in a series of interviews with Hans Ulrich Obrist that deepened over time into a true friendship. Gathered in this book alongside an extensive collection of never-before-seen archival material, these intimate conversations create an enduring portrait of the artist. Tracing her biography from its beginnings in Venezuela to New York, Mexico, and finally to California and New Mexico, Hurtado’s storytelling is punctuated by images from her visual world; from self-portraits and drawings to photographic chronicles of her passionate engagement with her family and the natural world, they impart the impression of a life vibrantly lived.
