From Los Angeles: Luchita Hurtado

‘I feel like a citizen of this planet. I’m so pleased to be here.’

  • Mar 31, 2020

The artist, who turned 99 last fall, offers some reassuring words, along with a call to action, from her home studio in Santa Monica.

As part of our ongoing 'From A Distance' series, Luchita shared musings on the state of the world, captured by her son and granddaughter. Having spent the bulk of her eight-decade practice taking the Earth and its elements as a central focus, it should come as little surprise that she urges us all to take our environment into sharper focus in these unprecedented times. – Follow us on Instagram and subscribe to our mailing list for ‘Dispatches’ of our latest online exhibitions, original videos, and experiences.
