Just had an email from the DMA’s intrepid PR Director Jill Bernstein about a free event in partnership with SMU which allows art, music and architecture lovers to hear from Argentinian artist Guillermo Kuitca – in person – about his scene-stealing design of the new curtain in the Winspear Opera House.
I’ve pasted the information below:
Wednesday, October 21, 6:30 p.m.
In honor of his inclusion in the exhibition Performance/Art and the premiere of his design for the stage curtain at the new Winspear Opera House, artist Guillermo Kuitca will join Noah Simblist, Associate Professor of Art at SMU, and Charles Wylie, the Lupe Murchison Curator of Contemporary Art at the Dallas Museum of Art, for a discussion of his work.
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Guillermo Kuitca is one of the most important Latin American artists working today. His work finds inspiration in the realms of architecture, theater, and cartography. Kuitca’s work has been featured in major solo and group exhibitions throughout the world and is held in several major international collections, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), the Tate Modern in London, and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid.

The Dallas Museum of Art is supported in part by the generosity of Museum members and donors and by the citizens of Dallas through the City of Dallas/Office of Cultural Affairs and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
Should be a fascinating evening; I hope to see you there!
