The Daily Heller: A Richard Tuttle Catalog With Five Sides and Character

Richard Tuttle: What Is the Object? at the Bard Center Gallery (18 W. 86th St.) is an exhibition of the artist’s explorations of the meaning of objects through material he has collected over the past five decades. Per the curatorial description, “In this exhibition, Tuttle’s objects are displayed with index cards that document his encounters with them, exhibition furniture that he made on which the objects and cards rest, and ribbons of text that he wrote, which hang from the gallery’s walls.” A catalog designed by Belgian designer Luc Derycke (edited by Peter N. Miller, with poems by Tuttle and text by Renee Gladman) is itself an object that moves the work out of the gallery space and into a tactile and portable experience.

Richard Tuttle and Choong Sup Lim

Two-person shows are always a risk. Not every pairing is convincing. “How Objects Grasp Their Magic,” Pace’s juxtaposition of works by Richard Tuttle and Choong Sup Lim—two artists of the same age and generation who come from starkly different contexts and traditions of figuration and representation—seems at first a curious match. While its poster places Lim and Tuttle’s work side-by-side, the exhibition is split between two floors, each dedicated to a single artist. Despite this physical separation, a certain sensitivity resonates throughout. On the psychovisual level, both artists wield an open understanding of the abject: not the dark and somber Bataillean kind, but a more poetic and optimistic type (that is, if you could ever call the abject “optimistic”).

Bard Graduate Center’s Upcoming Exhibit, Richard Tuttle: What is the Object?, Previewed in ARTnews

Attendees are invited to get hands-on with Richard Tuttle’s personal holdings this spring at the Bard Graduate Center Gallery in New York City. BGC’s exhibit Richard Tuttle: What is the Object? will be “among the first dedicated to the curiosities accumulated by the American post-Minimalist over six decades,” writes Tessa Solomon for ARTnews. An eclectic collection of objects, including “swatches of vintage fabric, ceramic teacups, and sculptural furniture,” will be on display and “available to handle.” The show opens on February 25 and runs through July 10, 2022. The tactile experience will be as important as the visual, Solomon writes, leaving visitors to ask, “What is the object?”
