Richard Serra Sculpture: Forty Years



Richard Serra Sculpture: Forty Years
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  Museum of Modern Art  •  Ongoing
 
In the early 1960s, sculptor Richard Serra (American, b. 1939) and the Minimalist artists of his generation turned to unconventional, industrial materials and began to accentuate the physical properties of their art. Over the years, Serra has expanded his spatial and temporal approach to sculpture and has focused primarily on large-scale work, including many site-specific works that engage with a particular architectural, urban, or landscape setting. This exhibition presents the artist's forty-year career, from his early experiments with materials such as rubber, neon, and lead to monumental late-career pieces, including Intersection II (1992) and Torqued Ellipse IV (1999), along with three new works that have never been exhibited before.
