Become a member of Bard Graduate Center today and be among the first to see Conserving Active Matter and Richard Tuttle: What is the Object?, opening on Friday, March 25! Conceived by a team of faculty members, Conserving Active Matter explores the activity of matter through objects that span five continents and range in time from the Paleolithic to the present. Richard Tuttle: What Is the Object? explores the meaning of objects through the eyes of celebrated contemporary American artist Richard Tuttle. Part exhibition, part artwork, this unique exhibition invites visitors to view, pick up, and hold 75 items drawn from Tuttle’s own collection.

As a member, you will be able to purchase a deluxe limited edition of Richard Tuttle: What Is the Object? with special member pricing. This exhibition catalogue, available exclusively from Bard Graduate Center, will be offered at 30% off the list price.

This volume, designed by the Belgian book artist Luc Derycke as a ‘book as object’, carries forth the challenging question of the meaning of objects. It includes an interview with Tuttle, an analysis of objects in poetic non-fiction by Renee Gladman, an essay about Tuttle’s art as the pursuit of a kind of philosophical exploration by Peter N. Miller, as well as poems by Tuttle and a short, surrealist tale about the artist’s objects. Tuttle’s objects and index cards are beautifully photographed throughout by Bruce M. White in this lavishly illustrated volume.

Members will also enjoy free admission, receive invitations to member events, priority reservations for public programs, and discounts on gifts, books, and select programs. Please see BGC Membership for a complete list of benefits.

There’s so much to look forward to at Bard Graduate Center when you’re a member! We look forward to seeing you soon.

Thank you.
