Guillermo Kuitca (born 1961) is an Argentinianmarker visual artist, born in Buenos Airesmarker and a key figure in the history of Latin American art known for his map and architectural work. Kuitca has exhibited worldwide and his work is held in several major international collections, including, the Metmarker, MoMAmarker, The Art Institute of Chicagomarker, The Tate Gallerymarker, Stedelijk Museummarker and Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Gardenmarker. His work has also been included in a number of international exhibits, including the 2007 Venice Biennale. In 1995, a 12 year survey of his work was organized and toured, crediting with increasing United Statesmarker' interest in his work after he made his New York Citymarker debut in the early 1990s.

In 1993, several art critics -- Carmen Albarch, Eduardo Lipschutz-Villa, Martin Rejtman, Jerry Saltz, and Marcelo E. Pacheco -- joined forces to produce a book titled A Book Based on Guillermo Kuitca

His work is also in a number of travelling collections including a winter 2008 exhibit at the Telfair Museum of Art in Savannah, Georgiamarker, which includes work from the North Carolina Museum of Artmarker. His opera-related niche work, inspired in part by Wagner, has led to an exhibit at the Metropolitan Opera's Met Gallery.

In May 2009 the Dallas Center for the Performing Artsmarker commissioned Kuitca to design the curtain for the Winspear Opera Housemarker. The design abstracts the seating plan for the Winspear’s Margaret McDermott Performance Hall and reproduces this image onto the curtain itself.
