Richard Tuttle: What Is the Object?
On View March 25–July 10, 2022
Bard Graduate Center Gallery

Consider your relationship with the things in your life by interacting with—picking up, holding, touching, viewing from multiple perspectives—the eclectic objects collected by celebrated contemporary American artist Richard Tuttle. An index card created by Tuttle accompanies each object, outlining his original encounter with it, how it entered his collection, and his thoughts about it. The exhibition also features a series of nine never-before-seen works by Tuttle along with sculptural furniture he designed to display his objects.
