M WOODS is an independent, not-for-profit art museum founded in 2014 by collectors Lin Han and Wanwan Lei, and co-founded by Michael Xufu Huang. M WOODS opened to the public with a permanent collection based on the founders’ private collection of international art. A set of guiding principles organizes the collection, which stretches from antiques to contemporary artworks. Endeavoring to articulate the universalism of art, M WOODS has been pursuing the purity and timelessness of art, meanwhile fulfilling the mission of being a contemporary art museum.
Richard Tuttle: Introduction to Practice
Curated by Victor Wang
16.03.19 - 16.06.19
In spring 2019, M WOODS presents Richard Tuttle: Introduction to Practice, a survey spanning five decades of the artist’s prolific career and his first in China. Guest curated by Victor Wang 王宗孚, the exhibition details Tuttle’s pursuit of art for life through a practice and visual language concerned with reality and a strengthening of the spirit. The layout of the exhibition is organized by a symbol designed by the artist and includes nearly 100 of Tuttle’s most widely recognized works. His major series—Paper Octagonals, Rope Pieces, Wire Pieces and more—are clustered into “pods” of three, a highly innovative method of display and a first for the artist. Developed in close collaboration between the artist and curator, the show also includes a major sculptural commission and a special publication.
