Show synopsis Richard Serra's use of industrial materials such as steel, the unadorned grace and totemic authority of his works, and his continued renewal of themes of balance and spatial volume have redefined the possibilities of sculpture. This major publication catalogues all of Serra's sculpture of the last thirteen years, and presents an invaluable resource for students of 20th century art. Published on the occasion of Serra's exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the book presents extensive photographic documentation of Serra's site-specific sculpture, as well as important critical text and an interview with the artist. The physical and visual weight of Serra's work anchors space as well as form, using gravity, mass and volume as integral components. His art calls attention to the tectonic power and purity of form itself, and to its capacity to make space coherent.
