LONDON.- Portrait of an Artist: Conversations with Trailblazing Creative Women is a remarkable new book bringing you face-to-face with an incredible selection of pioneering women who have reshaped the creative industries. Published by Prestel on 7th September, Portrait of an Artist features world-famous women all photographed and interviewed by Mexican artist Hugo Huerta Marin. These unseen candid images and ground-breaking interviews will be published for the first time.

From legendary visual artists Yoko Ono and Tracey Emin to groundbreaking musicians like Annie Lennox and Debbie Harry, and fashion giants such as Miuccia Prada and Diane von Fürstenberg, this collection of original interviews and Polaroid photographs of almost 30 trailblazing women spans creative industries, nationalities and generations to bring together a never-before published collection of leading voices.

Each creative is interviewed by multi-disciplinary artist and designer Hugo Huerta Marin whose work centers on gender and cultural identity. While their voices resonate throughout the new generation of artists and women around the world, these compelling conversations are further brought to life by intimate Polaroid images. In total, Hugo Huerta Marin has spent seven years and countless journeys to the homes, studios, theatres and galleries of these incredible female artists, capturing their portraits and stories in the places they felt comfortable.

Inspiring and revealing, this collection of interviews and photographs gives readers an unparalleled connection with some of the most fascinating women working in the arts today. Cate Blanchett reflects on the differences between acting on stage and in film; Marina Abramović discusses her most radical piece of performance art; Carrie Mae Weems discusses the relationship between race and photography.

Hugo Huerta Marin shines a light on diversity and individuality in the arts by featuring women from around the world including English singer-songwriter FKA Twigs, award-winning French actress Isabelle Huppert and renowned Japanese fashion designer and founder of Comme des Garçons Rei Kawakubo.

Portable in size to reflect its intimate content, Portrait of an Artist: Conversations with Trailblazing Creative Women creates both a portrait of each individual woman and – collectively – a powerful portrait of the impact of women on the creative industries.

Hugo Huerta Marin comments: “My work is an attempt to create counter narratives that emphasise the correlation between creating and thinking. Portrait of an Artist is a project inspired by remarkable female artists that shifted the culture by shaking the structures of established belief systems. They have no rules. They break all the borders. And their voice should resonate throughout the new generations of artists.”

Hugo Huerta Marin is a multi-disciplinary artist and graphic designer whose work centers on gender and cultural identity. Hugo works as art director to Marina Abramović, with whom he has collaborated internationally. Hugo’s solo exhibitions have been featured at The Hole Gallery in New York, Never Apart Gallery in Montreal, and MUAC museum in Mexico City. He was part of the 2019 Casa Nano art residency in Tokyo.
