Paul Sacaridiz

Paul Sacaridiz

Fall 2017 Visiting Artist 

Paul Sacaridiz is the Executive Director of Haystack Mountain School of Crafts on Deer Isle, Maine.  During his lecture, the artist will speak about his own artistic practice, as well as the “artist-run” organizational model, with a focus on Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. As a sculptor, Paul Sacaridiz is interested in the collision of abstraction, urban planning and utopian systems; and the seemingly impossible task of understanding something in its entirety. Over the past number of years he has produced multiple large-scale projects, designed for specific institutions such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Denver Art Museum and the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft among others.

Richard Tuttle

Richard Tuttle

Spring 2016 Linda Pace Visiting Artist 

Renowned artist Richard Tuttle’s work since the 1960s has revolutionized the landscape of contemporary art, challenging rules and notions of genre and media. Working with humble materials, Tuttle engages formal principles in his work, highlighting line, scale, and space as central concerns. His work exceeds any rational determinations, sensitizing viewers to perception and the unconscious. He has been the subject of more than two-hundred solo exhibitions during his career, including his first museum exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, curated by Marcia Tucker (1975), and his travelling retrospective organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2005). His work is held in more than fifty public collections worldwide and has been included in numerous important group shows including Documenta (1972, 1977, 1982) and the Venice Biennale (1976, 1997, 2001).
