Tuesday Tours will explore object highlights from two exhibitions now on view at Bard Graduate Center Gallery.

Conserving Active Matter explores the human effort to conserve things. On view are objects that span five continents and range in time from the Paleolithic to the present. Learn about how the work of conservation is essential for the lives of the things that sustain us. Then consider your relationship with the things in your life through the eyes of celebrated contemporary American artist Richard Tuttle. Part exhibition, part artwork, Richard Tuttle: What Is the Object? invites visitors to see, touch and hold 75 items drawn from Tuttle’s own collection, ranging from metal work and decorative sculptures to vintage fabrics and antique curios. 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.

Join us on Tuesdays this spring for a lively conversation with knowledgeable gallery educators in our intimate townhouse setting. Register today.
