American Artist Lecture Series: Richard Tuttle


Since the 1960s, Richard Tuttle has created an extraordinarily varied body of work often using common materials like plywood, fabric, cardboard or rope. The scale of his works and manipulation of simple media lend them a fragile beauty underpinned by a rigorous investigation of formal qualities, in particular line, volume, colour and texture. Whether considered as sculptures or drawings in space, the works call attention to their materiality and the spatial relationships they set up with their viewers. Richard Tuttle is the third speaker in the American Artist Lecture Series, a partnership between Art In Embassies, Tate Modern and US Embassy London. It seeks to bring the greatest living modern and contemporary American artists to the UK in the name of cultural diplomacy.
