Book Signing for Richard Tuttle’s

at Printed Matter, Inc.

Saturday, November 2, 2002, 5 to 7 PM

Printed Matter is very pleased to announce a book signing event for Richard Tuttle’s book, Richard Tuttle: Memento/center, on Saturday, November 2, 2002, from 5 to 7 PM. Printed Matter, Inc. is located at 535 West 22nd Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues.

Over the last four decades, Richard Tuttle has challenged the boundaries and frameworks for making and experiencing art while amplifying our understanding and perception of time and space in an ever-changing universe. In works that, since the 1960s have defied conventional categories of painting, drawing and sculpture and since the 1980s have exploded in a profusion of form, color and scale, Tuttle has broken down the barriers separating a work from its surrounding space-literally and philosophically expanding the parameters of art to embrace life.

Richard Tuttle: Memento/center was published on the occasion of two recent exhibitions on the artist’s work curated by Susan Harris that took place in the summer of 2002. Tuttle’s work was presented in Memento at the Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves in Porto, Portugal and in center at the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea in Santiago de Compostela Spain. While the exhibitions were conceived autonomously for these two museums in neighboring cities and countries, Tuttle, nevertheless, envisioned them as complimentary components of a larger, if intangible whole and, in the process, expanded further the parameters within which he has been creating and through which the viewer approaches his art.

This large-scale [15 1/4 x 15 1/4 inch] book functions both as an exhibition catalogue with tipped-in installation photographs and essays – which are tri-lingual in Portuguese, Spanish, and English – by Miguel Fernández-Cid / Vincente Todolí, Susan Harris, José A. Bragança de Miranda, David Platzker, and Eduardo Lago as well as an vital artists’ publication interspersed with interventions and texts by Tuttle.

Richard Tuttle: Memento/center was co-published by Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves, Porto, Portugal and Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Santiago de Compostela, Spain.114 pages, hardback, edition of 1000 copies, ISBN: Paper: 972-739-100-1 / 84-453-3355-0, and is priced at $100.

Printed Matter is located at 535 West 22nd Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues.
