Richard Serra: Early Work

Published by David Zwirner/Steidl
Edited by David Frankel. Text by Hal Foster.

Installation view, <I>Richard Serra: Skulpturen, Neon-Objekte</I>, Galerie Ricke, Cologne, 1968, is reproduced from <I>Richard Serra: Early Work</I>. Photograph by Wolfgang Prange, courtesy of Akademie der Künste Archiv Bildende Kunst, Berlin.This publication focuses on the early work of Richard Serra, one of the most influential artists working today. The works included in this volume represent the beginning of the artist’s innovative, process-oriented experiments with nontraditional materials, such as vulcanized rubber, neon and lead, in addition to key early examples of his work in steel and a selection of the artist’s films from this period. The interplay of gravity and material that was introduced early in Serra’s career set the stage for his ongoing engagement with the spatial and temporal properties of sculpture. This monograph aims to reconsider the groundbreaking practices and ideas that so firmly situate Serra in the history of twentieth-century art. The publication includes new scholarship by Hal Foster, in addition to archival texts and photographs from the years 1966 to 1972.
Richard Serra was born in San Francisco in 1938. His first solo exhibitions were held at the Galleria La Salita, Rome, in 1966, and, in the United States, at the Leo Castelli Warehouse, New York, in 1969. His first solo museum exhibition was held at The Pasadena Art Museum in 1970; subsequent solo museum shows have been held at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 1977; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1986; Dia Center for the Arts, New York, 1997; and the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, St. Louis, 2003. In 2005, eight large-scale works by Serra were installed permanently at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, and in 2007 The Museum of Modern Art, New York presented a retrospective of the artist’s work. A traveling survey of Serra’s drawings was on view in 2011–12 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Menil Collection, Houston.

Richard Serra: Early Work

Richard Serra: Early WorkRichard Serra's early lead sculpture, "Bent Pipe Roll" (1968), photographed by Peter Moore, is reproduced from David Zwirner and Steidl's definitive and stunning new monograph, Richard Serra: Early Work, covering the groundbreaking years 1966-72. Essayist Hal Foster writes, "What is it to be upright—as a body, as a structure—in a world of gravity? What is it to free-stand if we assume, for a moment, that verticality is not a given but a goal? As the basis of the sculpture shifts from a logic of materials to axiomatic principles of building, Serra activates our own 'kinaesthetic apprehension' (as Dan Graham described it early on), an apprehension in which the body is engaged as a kind of architecture and vice versa." continue to blog
