Richard Serra master metal artist

Richard Serra (born November 2, 1939) is an American Minimalist scultpture known for working with large-scale assemblies of metal. Richard Serra is one of the most significant artists of his generation. His groundbreaking sculpture explores the exchange between artwork, site, and viewer. He has produced large-scale, site-specific sculptures for architectural, urban, and landscape settings spanning the globe, from Iceland to New Zealand. Earlier this year, he conceived Promenade, a course of five steel sculptural elements towering seventeen meters, for MONUMENTA at the Grand Palais in Paris. In addition to the drawing retrospective “Work comes out of work” at the Kunsthaus Bregenz (2008), other recent projects include the eight-part permanent installation The Matter of Time at the Guggenheim Bilbao (2005) and “Richard Serra Sculpture: Forty Years” at The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2007).
