Richard Tuttle, Just in case You want to order, 2018. Mixed media installation.
Prominent American artist Richard Tuttle ( b.1941), best known for his subtle and enigmatic works, presents It Seems Like It's 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, Hepworth, Avery, Rodin, and others—the artist creates a unique experience that favors slow looking and introspection.
