Richard Tuttle’s ‘I Don’t Know · The Weave of Textile Language’

To see more photos and videos from Richard Tuttle’s new exhibition, explore the Tate Modern location page, and follow @tategallery and @whitechapelgallery on Instagram.

Richard Tuttle’s I Don’t Know · The Weave of Textile Language is the latest large-scale work to be shown in the Tate Modern’s (@tategallery) Turbine Hall. The American artist’s largest work to date, the piece measures 12 meters (39 feet) in height and covers more than half of the former electrical supply hall in red and marigold fabrics on plywood.

The sculpture focuses on the importance of materials and textiles in Tuttle’s work and is part of a larger exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery (whitechapelgallery) in London surveying five decades of his career.

“For a lot of people, art serves as a security—‘I know what I like,’” Tuttle explains. “But it is quite possible to have the other kind of people for whom art is an adventure. For me art is a kind of food, a food for the spirit.”

The exhibition at the Tate will be on show until April 6, 2015, and until December 14, 2014 at the Whitechapel Gallery.
