The Art of Richard Tuttle

The Art of Richard Tuttle features more than 200 works spanning the artist's four-decade career, making it the most comprehensive presentation of his work to date. The exhibition covers approximately 15 bodies of work from the mid-1960s to the present in a full range of categories, including sculpture, assemblage, works on paper, artist books, and furniture. Tuttle's distinctive individual practice and its relation to American art since 1965 will be emphasized, articulating the trajectory of his work and celebrating his singular achievements. Organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) in close collaboration with the artist, this exhibition is curated by SFMOMA Elise S. Haas Senior Curator of Painting and Sculpture Madeleine Grynsztejn.

The Art of Richard Tuttle is organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.


Poetics of the Handmade

Poetics of the Handmade features a group of artists based in Latin America whose works of art are made by the artists, own hands. While many of the artists, contemporaries tend toward a "post-studio" approach—with assistants producing their work—this group explores the close relationship that exists between a person and his or her craft. The artists, interest in transformation and process has led them to produce works that are painstakingly handcrafted from a wide range of materials. They have found poetry in the depiction of quotidian objects and in the powerful resonance of small actions.

Included in the exhibition are Eduardo Abaroa (Mexico), Magdalena Atria (Chile), Mónica Bengoa (Chile), Fernando Bryce (Peru), Darío Escobar (Guatemala), Máximo González (Argentina), Marco Maggi (Uruguay), and Livia Marin (Chile). Presenting widely differing approaches, the eight artists will be represented by large-scale installations and select bodies of work. While Atria, Escobar, and Bryce show recent work, Abaroa, Bengoa, and González present new pieces created for this occasion. Poetics of the Handmade is organized for The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, by MOCA Associate Curator Alma Ruiz and accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
