Painter and sculptor Richard Tuttle joins artist and writer Louis Block and Rail ArtSeen editor Amanda Gluibizzi for a conversation. We’ll conclude with a poetry reading from Gabriela Jauregui.
One of the most representative American artists of the postwar period, occupying interstitial positions between several genres, including painting, sculpture, drawing, and poetry. He consistently opens new possibilities for a variety of mediums and materials, demonstrating how traditional categories of artmaking can function as starting points for unhindered, open investigations into the functioning of perception and language. His early encounters with artists and artworks associated with pop and minimalism laid the groundwork for a project precipitated on reinvention and change. Since the 1970s, Richard Tuttle (b. 1941, Rahway, New Jersey) has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions at museums throughout the world. Tuttle lives and works in New York and Abiquiú, New Mexico.
A Brooklyn based painter and writer. His writing has appeared in the Brooklyn Rail, Hyperallergic, and Full Bleed Journal, and his work has been shown in Baltimore, Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Venice.
Formerly Associate Professor at Ohio State University, Amanda Gluibizzi is the founding co-director of NFAH and Art Editor of the Brooklyn Rail. She specializes in mid- and late-20th century art, design, and urbanism in the United States, Europe, and Latin America.
