New York—Pace is pleased to announce its inaugural appearance in the Frieze New York art fair with a solo presentation of new drawings by Richard Tuttle. Since the 1960s, Tuttle has challenged conventions of genre and media, sensitizing viewers to the experience of looking with his work. This new series of drawings, titled Aspects, were completed in Maine in the summer of 2014 and evince Tuttle’s interest in formal properties of line and scale. In each work—a cut sheet from an artist’s drawing pad mounted on its cardboard backing—he employs gestures with paint, graphite, line, or the shadow of the paper on its cardboard ground that resonate with his expanded notion of drawing.
For Frieze New York, Tuttle has conceived of the stand as an immersive environment—what he calls a pavilion. Both the interior and exterior walls will be painted black, and his red-framed drawings will be exhibited with a white band surrounding them. Twelve purple, ovoid forms will be spray-painted onto the specially designed Masonite floor. The environment creates a hermetic space that envelops the viewer, heightening the intimacy of the experience with these drawings.
The presentation at Frieze follows Tuttle’s recent commission at the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, which coincided with a survey of his textile works at the Whitechapel Gallery. The survey, as well as a retrospective of his prints organized by the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, will both open at the Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia, on May 15. Also in May, the Pulitzer Art Foundation, St. Louis, will present a solo exhibition of Tuttle’s seminal 1972 wire pieces from May 1 to September 12.
Richard Tuttle (b. 1941, Rahway, New Jersey) has been the subject of more than two-hundred solo exhibitions during his career, ranging from his first museum exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, curated by Marcia Tucker (1975), to his travelling retrospective organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2005). Tuttle’s work has been included in numerous important group shows including Documenta (1972, 1977, 1982) and the Venice Biennale (1976, 1997, 2001); his work is represented in the collections of more than fifty institutions worldwide. His work will be included in the five-artist exhibition Drawing Redefined, opening October 1 at the de Cordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA.
Richard Tuttle lives and works in Abiquiu, New Mexico; Mount Desert, Maine; and New York.

理查德·塔特尔(Richard Tuttle)的一个新项目，名为”我不知道, 或织物语言的编造”（I Don't Know, Or The Weave of Textile Language），会在泰特现代美术馆的涡轮大厅里展出。展览会特别展出塔特尔的纺织品，这个装置艺术亦凑巧同时与白教堂画廊（Whitechapel Gallery）正展出艺术家从60年代到现在的作品的回顾展同时进行。这两个展代表英国有史以来对理查德·塔特尔最大型的探索。 正如塔特尔强调，创造织品是对作品认识不可或缺的一部分。而作品的特点是他使用了在印度古吉拉特邦纺织公司所制造的丰富织品，然后连接到一个巨大的胶合框板。艺术家道：「我猜想艺术家的工作就是要尝试找一种机械与人类之间最佳的结合。」 这个纺织装置艺术结合了「艺术家设计的会摇晃的巨大织品，以人造和天然纤维而制的三种颜色大胆又灿烂的面料」，而作品将会持续展出直至2015年4月6日。今年的弗里兹艺术博览会由10月15至19日于伦敦的摄政公园举行，当中佩斯（展位A2和C9）将展出最近两个由塔特尔做的雕塑品，展示出他充满抒情和诗意的用料和形式。
