Hard-to-Classify: Richard Tuttle’s ‘Systems’ at Pace Gallery

NEW YORK—With random objects and materials, Richard Tuttle has created a series of hard-to-define sculptural installations that ironically bears a regimented name: “Systems, VIII–XII”

The exhibit is on view at Pace Gallery which describes the show as continuing “Tuttle’s search for a new type of sculpture that expands space physically while retaining the intimacy of his smaller works…his newest works will center on the horizontal access and the relation with the floor.” The gallery adds, “Since the 1960s, Tuttle has created an extraordinarily varied body of work that eludes historical or stylistic categorization, working instead in the space between painting, sculpture, poetry, assemblage, and drawing.”

“Systems, VIII-XII” is on view at Pace’s West 25th Street gallery from Sept. 7 to Oct. 13, 2012.
