Offering new insight into his artistic practice, and organized in close collaboration with the artist, Richard Tuttle: A Print Retrospective is the first-ever comprehensive examination of the prints of Richard Tuttle. In exploiting the unique possibilities of multiple printmaking processes, Tuttle reveals his deep interest in the relationship between medium, tools, actions, and collaboration. Through a selection of more than 100 works from the 1970s to today, many of which have never been exhibited by a museum, the exhibition demonstrates how Tuttle reinvents printmaking with his experimental approach, raising intriguing questions about technique, materiality, and the nature of art itself.
Bowdoin College Students will give tours of the exhibition through August 15 on Tuesday through Friday at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Free and open to the public.
