GENEVA.- Pace is presenting the gallery’s first exhibition of Richard Tuttle’s work in Geneva, at Quai des Bergues, from 14 November 2018 to 10 January 2019. The exhibition features a selection of Tuttle’s recent works, including remarkable pieces from the Epigrams series.

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 categorization. Tuttle’s work exists in the space between painting, sculpture, poetry and drawing. Language, spatial relationship, and scale are also central concerns for the artist.

“I use the material to question itself, or to question the very thing, which is already “the picture,” I think. But I may have fallen in love during this long process, not to mention my response to the sensuality of things, to seeing how the thing is embedded in a singular, appealing matrix of matter, lost to distinction… by me!” Richard Tuttle to Bill Brown, The Object in American Art: Numinous Receptacle, 10 March 2016.

In Tuttle’s lyrical oeuvre, materials and presentation are always interrelated, with the artist consistently guiding viewer’s aesthetic experience. He draws beauty out of humble materials including cardboard and aluminum, here by reflecting the fragility of the world. Works such as 13 Angels for Jack and Space is Shape continue Tuttle’s exploration of line and volume and reach poetic dimensions. Without a specific reference point, these pieces reflect a sense of spirituality and mirror the artist’s deep intellectual curiosity.

Richard Tuttle (b. 1941, Rahway, New Jersey) has been the subject of numerous major solo exhibitions including his 1975 exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and a 2005 retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art that toured the United States. In 2014, he exhibited in the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall; simultaneously, the Whitechapel Gallery, London, presented I Don’t Know. Or The Weave of Textile Language, a survey of his textile works that traveled to the Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia. His work is held in more than fifty public collections worldwide, including Centre Pompidou, Paris; Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C.; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; Tate, London; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, among others. The artist lives and works in Mount Desert, Maine; Abiquiu, New Mexico; and New York City.
