This symposium is organized in conjunction with the exhibition Richard Tuttle: What Is the Object? (March 25–July 10, 2022). If the exhibition on view is Richard Tuttle’s way of answering the question he posed in its title, in this symposium each of the five speakers will offer an answer from their own personal, artistic, professional, and disciplinary perspectives. The round of presentations will be followed by a panel discussion that will also include the artist.

Speakers include Claudia Rankine, Ann-Sophie Lehmann, Tomashi Jackson, K. Anthony Jones, and Francey Russell.

We have opened registration for a limited in-person audience. Bard Graduate Center requires proof of vaccination and photo identification to enter the building. Guests are required to wear masks regardless of vaccination status.

This talk will also be available on Zoom. A link will be circulated to registrants by 10 am on the day of the event. This event will be live with automatic captions.
