Guillermo Kuitca, Les Habitants



In October 2014, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain has presented The Inhabitants, an idea of Argentinian painter Guillermo Kuitca. Borrowing its title from a film of the same name by Artavazd Pelechian, the exhibition The Inhabitants plunges visitors into a pictorial and sound environment, in which Guillermo Kuitca builds an intricate network between his own art and that of fellow artists Tarsila do Amaral, Francis Bacon, Vija Celmins, David Lynch, Artavazd Pelechian and Patti Smith.
On this occasion, the Fondation Cartier has published a book elaborated in close collaboration with the artist. It displays exhibition views, preparatory drawings, reproductions of works and unpublished documents, allowing the reader to discover the artist’s creative process and realization of this exceptional exhibition.
