Richard Tuttle, Collector: Class III

In this pop-up class, held on three successive Wednesdays in BGC’s Object Lab, Richard Tuttle will talk about his collection. In the first class, he will present the objects, essentially giving them to the students.  In the second, he will locate the objects by naming collections and institutions where they also may be found. In the third, he will release the objects by analyzing how they appear, and affect a definition of material culture, enlarging the notion of human development to the treatment of each other in a society.

Wednesday, October 30, 12:15-1:15 pm | Object Lab
