Richard Serra

American, 1938

One of the most prominent sculptors of our era, Richard Serra is an American artist known for his large-scale sculptures made for site-specific landscape, urban, and architectural settings. Serra's sculptures are notable for their material quality and exploration of the relationship between the viewer, the work, and the site. Since the mid-1960s, Serra has worked to radicalize and extend the definition of sculpture beginning with his early experiments with various nontraditional materials such as rubber, neon, and lead, to his large-scale steel works.

Serra was honored with solo exhibitions at the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris, in 1984; the Museum Haus Lange, Krefeld, Germany, in 1985; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1986. One of this large-size sculptures can currently be seen in Voorlinden Museum as a part of permanent collection.
