About

This autumn the RCA School of Fine Art hosts its third Visual Cultures public lecture series with a focus on today's art production and culture. The theme, Contemporaneity and Other Tales, invites audiences and cultural figures to consider the world around them through various artistic mediums. Guest speakers, including distinguished artists, writers, curators and academics will engage audiences in conversations about today's artistic production process and the broader cultural discussion that their art inspires.

Richard Tuttle is one of the most significant artists working today. Since the mid-1960s, he has created an extraordinarily varied body of work that eludes historical or stylistic categorisation. Tuttle's work exists in the space between painting, sculpture, poetry, assemblage, and drawing. He draws beauty out of humble materials, reflecting the fragility of the world in his poetic works. Without a specific reference point, his investigations of line, volume, colour, texture, shape and form are imbued with a sense of spirituality and informed by a deep intellectual curiosity. Language, spatial relationship and scale are also central concerns for the artist, who maintains an acute awareness for the viewer's aesthetic experience. Tuttle lives and works in Mount Desert, Maine; Abiquiu, New Mexico and New York City. Solo exhibitions include a commission for Tate Modern's Turbine Hall from October 2014 alongside a major exhibition, I Don't Know or The Weave of Textile Language, at the Whitechapel Gallery.

Booking is essential.
