Two Survey Exhibitions, 30 Years Apart
In 1975, Richard Tuttle had his first major museum survey at the Whitney Museum of American Art—a watershed moment both for the artist and the controversy the exhibition elicited over works of ephemeral materials in a style that few knew how to discuss or engage.

Artist Richard Tuttle installs the work "Ten Kinds of Memory and Memory Itself" (1973) at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

Richard Tuttle commonly refers to his art as drawing rather than sculpture, emphasizing the diminutive scale and idea-based nature of his work. He subverts the conventions of modernist sculptural practice by creating small, eccentrically playful objects in decidedly humble materials. Influences on his work include calligraphy, architecture, and poetry.
