Carmen Herrera
The 100 Years Show

This video is a section of Alison Klayman’s short film The 100 Years Show, a documentary about the life of artist Carmen Herrera, focusing on her recent rise to art-world fame at the age of 100.

Carmen Herrera was born in Cuba on May 31st, 1915. She has lived in New York City since the mid-1950s and the achievements of her long career have recently gained great recognition. Her friend and neighbor Tony Bechara has been instrumental in Herrera’s ascent. Herrera’s May, 2005 solo exhibition at the Latin Collector Gallery in New York, directed by Frederico Seve, marked the start of this new period. The artist was on the cover of ArtNexus #58 (September-November, 2005), which also featured a monographic essay on her work, available

Herrera is currently represented in London and New York by Lisson Gallery. Her work is featured in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York and The Tate Modern in London, as well as other important institutions and private collections.

The Whitney Museum, also in New York, is preparing a large retrospective of her work, slated for the fall of 2016
