Claudia Huidobro

Of Chilean heritage, Claudia Huidobro was born in Paris, France, where she currently lives and works. After studying art in school, her first contact with photography came through her modeling career during the 1980s, when she worked with famous photographers such as Helmut Newton, Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh, Paolo Roversi, and William Klein. She became a muse to Jean Paul Gaultier, working closely with him in his studio. In the 1990s, Huidobro quit the fashion world to dedicate herself to theater, music, and visual arts. Since 2000, her drawings, collages, and photographs have been exhibited from Chile to China, and at several fairs in Europe. This is her third presentation in New York, having most recently appeared in Olivier Saillard’s performance "Models never talk," which was specially created for Crossing The Line in 2014.
