Richard Tuttle | Open Carefully

Richard Tuttle
Open Carefully
New York City, USA: Sperone Westwater, 2000
10 x 23 x 3 cm.
Edition of 1000 signed and numbered copies

For his third solo exhibition at Sperone Westwater, Two With Any To, Richard Tuttle presented a series of painted plywood panels of various simple colors and shapes. Open Carefully, an unusual exhibition catalogue/artists' book/artists' multiple hybrid, was published in conjunction with the show.

The work consists of a hand painted plastic container, suggestive of a clam shell, which has compartments within an oval. One holds five painted stones and the other contains a small booklet of ten thumbnail images of recent sculptures. Lastly, a fan made out of five printed paper strands.
