The Serpentine presents the first UK solo exhibition of works by Luchita Hurtado. The exhibition will trace the trajectory of Hurtado’s expansive, 80-year career and reveal the scale, experimentation and playfulness of her impressive oeuvre.

Hurtado’s work is characterized by an original view of the world that is both grounded and transcendental, and her subject matter makes use of unexpected perspectives – looking straight down or across her own body, or straight up to a glimpse of sky – using cosmic motifs and geometric abstractions. Hers is a vision of the human body as a part of the world, not separate from nature. By coupling intimate gestures of the body with expansive views of the sky and the earth, Hurtado maps a visceral connective tissue between us all.
