Retrospective of the contemporary American artist Richard Tuttle. The exhibition brings together more than three hundred significant works from collections worldwide and features work from the mid-1960s to the present including sculptures, paintings, assemblages, works on paper, and artist books.
Born in Rahway, New Jersey, in 1941, Richard Tuttle now makes his home in both New York City and Abiquiu, New Mexico. Beginning in the mid-1960s, Tuttle’s work formed an essential part of the developments that reconceived Minimalism by adopting a direct and improvisational process of making art using nontraditional materials. Tuttle is among the most influential of the first-generation Post-Minimalists—a group that includes Eva Hesse, Bruce Nauman, and Richard Serra.
