“So I decided that I was related to the trees – to everything here – both good and bad. That’s where I want to be. No sending me off to another planet, when we get too busy here.” —Luchita Hurtado

For over 70 years, artist Luchita Hurtado has explored her connections with nature and the universe around her. Born in Venezuela in 1920, Hurtado lived in New York, Mexico, the American Southwest, and Northern California, developing a variety of unique styles and innovative processes into a remarkable visual vocabulary that reflects her personal sensibilities. Opening on January 31 and running through April 6, 2019, at Hauser & Wirth on 69th Street in New York, is the exhibition Luchita Hurtado: Dark Years. This will be Hurtado’s first solo gallery show in New York, in advance of a solo show at the Serpentine in London this summer, opening May 2019. Hauser & Wirth visited the remarkable Hurtado in her studio.
