INTERSECTIONS: RICHARD TUTTLE
American artist Richard Tuttle (b.1941), best known for his subtle and enigmatic works, presents It Looks Like It Is Going to Be, an elaborate installation spread throughout the second floor of the original Phillips House galleries that combines his 41-verse poem with 41 works that he created for each verse. By juxtaposing his poetry with visual objects and also bringing into the conversation works on paper from the Phillips’s permanent collection - by Matisse, Dove, Avery, Rodin, and others - the artist creates a unique experience that favors slow looking and introspection. It Looks Like It Is Going to Be is a part of Intersections, the Phillips’s ongoing series of contemporary art projects in which artists are asked to produce work that engages the museum’s historic architecture and/or permanent collection, thereby maintaining the relationship of past and present, modern and contemporary.
