May 1 – 7:  Richard Tuttle-A Print Retrospective, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, OSU Museum of Art, 720 S. Husband St.  As the first comprehensive survey of Richard Tuttle’s prints, this exhibition reveals the artist’s profound interest in the ambiguous and transitional nature of this art form.  Since the 1960s, Richard Tuttle has created poetic, often ephemeral, works which – resolutely material and arranged with seemingly minimal interventions – address at closer inspection profound issues of material and illusion, of what we see and what we understand.  Prints with their unusual ability to render visible also hidden information of process and change offer for Tuttle’s artistic research a vital field of experimentation and cognition.  Since the 1970s, he has created a diverse printed oeuvre collaborating with renowned printers and publishers across the country.  Tuttle’s prints with often subtle and complex surfaces, lure us into careful and attentive looking and contemplation on the relationship between the material and the illusional.  This exhibition is the second in our New York Project, a series of exhibitions exploring key New York artists of the past 50 years.  Richard Tuttle: A Print Retrospective is curated by independent curator Christina von Rotenhan and organized by the Oklahoma State University Museum of Art in collaboration with the Bowdoin College Museum of Art in Maine.  Free and open to the public.
