Richard Tuttle I Don’t Know . The Weave of Textile Language 2014

Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall has played host to some of the world’s most striking and memorable works of contemporary art. Now, this vast space welcomes the largest work ever created by renowned American sculptor Richard Tuttle (born 1941).

Entitled I Don’t Know . The Weave of Textile Language, this newly commissioned sculpture combines vast swathes of fabrics designed by the artist from both man-made and natural fibres in three bold and brilliant colours.

The commission is part of a wider survey of the artist taking place in London this autumn and comprising a major exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery surveying five decades of Tuttle's career and a sumptuous new publication rooted in the artist's own collection of historic and contemporary textiles.

A double whammy of exhibitions for the revered American artist: a textile-based commission in the Tate’s Turbine Hall and a retrospective at the Whitechapel.Evening Standard, Autumn 2014's hottest London events
