2-TIMES  Art
Luchita Hurtado,
Dark Years
@ Hauser & Wirth

When that first 
photograph was taken 
of the world from space 
and you saw this little 
ball in blackness… 
I became aware of 
what I felt I was. 

1920 – Maiquetía,

Dark Years’:
Is Los Angeles–based 
Hurtado's first exhibition 
with Hauser & Wirth,
focusing on the artist’s
early works from the
1940's to the 1950's, 
comprising of crayon
and ink paintings on
board and paper,
graphite and ink
drawings, and oil
paintings on canvas. 

Forthcoming solo: 
May 2019. 

My memory is not 
what it was. It’s 
a very interesting 
situation because 
sometimes I don’t 
know whether I 
dreamt something 
or whether I lived it. 
It really doesn’t 
matter one way or 
another. It was 
an experience...
