Published on the occasion of two concurrent exhibitions at Gagosian Gallery’s London locations in 2014 and 2015, this new catalogue features recent work by seminal artist Richard Serra, including four monumental sculptures and a single, yet massive, work on paper. The pioneer of large-scale, site-specific sculptures, Richard Serra has created works of art for architectural, urban, and landscape settings around the globe, and presented in this beautiful new book are the most recent additions to that oeuvre. Documenting the artist’s 2014–15 London shows with Gagosian Gallery, this volume highlights Serra’s awe-inspiring sculptures, as well as the five-meter-long work on paper, Double Rift #2 (2011), with striking full-page black-and-white installation shots.Art historian Neil Cox contributes a new and insightful essay on Serra’s work. Paying particular attention to the works in relation to space, Cox delivers detailed analyses on each of the exhibited pieces, providing further context for any reader.
