Tate Modern's Turbine Hall presents a new commission by Richard Tuttle, entitled I Don't Know, Or The Weave of Textile Language. Featuring Tuttle's textiles, the installation coincides with Whitechapel Gallery's retrospective of the artist's work from the 1960s to the present. These two displays comprise the United Kingdom's largest-ever survey of Richard Tuttle.
As Tuttle has emphasized, the creation of the fabric is integral to understanding the work, which features rich fabrics produced by a textile firm in Gujarat, India that were then attached to a monumental plywood frame. “I guess the job of an artist is to try to find a healthy union of the mechanical and the human,” the artist said.
On Thursday 25 September, Pace London opened Mario Merz at 6 Burlington Gardens. The exhibition will be on view until 8 November.
