San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
San Francisco, CA,
As a highlight of its 2005 exhibition schedule, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) will present The Art of Richard Tuttle from July 2 through October 16, 2005. The first full-scale retrospective of this influential American contemporary artist’s oeuvre, the exhibition brings together more than three hundred significant works from collections worldwide and unifies Tuttle’s four-decade career in the most comprehensive presentation of his work ever mounted. Organized by Madeleine Grynsztejn, Elise S. Haas Senior Curator of Painting and Sculpture at SFMOMA, in close collaboration with the artist, The Art of Richard Tuttle will embark upon an extensive national tour following its San Francisco debut.
The exhibition will showcase a definitive selection of Tuttle’s richly complex and highly diverse output from the mid-1960s to the present including sculptures, paintings, assemblages, works on paper, and artist books. The artist’s distinctive style and its relation to American art since 1965 will be emphasized, summarizing the trajectory of his work and celebrating his singular achievements.
After opening at SFMOMA, The Art of Richard Tuttle will travel to the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (November 10, 2005 to February 5, 2006); the Des Moines Art Center (March 18 to June 11, 2006); the Dallas Museum of Art (July 15 to October 8, 2006); the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (November 11, 2006 to February 4, 2007); and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (March 18 to June 25, 2007).
