Richard Tuttle on his experiences as a misunderstood child prodigy

In my latest episode about The Art Movement, I talked about the challenge of understanding early signs of artistic genius. This has been a source of frustration for artists and caused ruptures as well as traumatic experiences that many artists have talked about over the years.

I made specific reference to Richard Tuttle, the acclaimed post-minimalist artist. I found a video of an interview of his produced by the Louisiana Channel where he shared his own experience of growing up in a ruptured family and education system that neither understood nor had any room for his genius.

This is something that I am very interested in and so, I thought it might be a good idea to share the full video, which you can watch via the player below.
