Richard Tuttle’s new exhibition at Pace Gallery has a hard act to follow, coming hot on the heels of the gallery’s immersive Transcending Boundaries exhibition which proved a sell-out success. Given that Tuttle has commanded a major retrospective at the Whitechapel Gallery in 2014, as well as filling Tate’s Turbine Hall in 2014 for their annual commission, this is certainly an artist who is up to the task. Nevertheless, The Critical Edge, which comes to London next week after being on display at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, is a very different beast from the gallery’s previous art-tech installation. Renowned for his work with textiles and fabric, Tuttle has spent his career exploring the change from two-dimensional space to three-dimensional form. The display will focus on his most recent creations, which are intended to provoke reflection and contemplation in the viewer. So if you find yourself frazzled around W1, you know where to go.
