Richard Tuttle is a New York based post-minimalist artist who relies on a variety of media, including textiles in his art.  Tuttle’s work is in the collection of the Whitney and the MET among other world renowned art museums.  He is also a textile collector and was featured in an interview in HALI 182, Winter 2014.  He will speak on Mary Hunt Kahlenberg, a curator and collector of native textiles whose traveling exhibition on Navajo blankets, organized at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, broke with tradition by presenting Navajo weaving as fine art. Her Indonesian collection was the subject of a 1998 exhibition at LACMA as well as a  major publication, “Five Centuries of Indonesian Textiles.”
