Richard Serra – Early Work


537 West 20th Street
New York, NY 10011
April 12th - June 15th, 2013


Currently on display at David Zwirner's new five-story, 30,000 square foot space on 20th Street in Manhattan, is a range of early Richard Serra works dating from 1966 to 1971. The exhibition focuses on Serra's early process-orientated experimentations in vulcanized rubber, neon and lead as well as his use of steel. Presented alongside the main exhibition are a selection of short films the artist also produced during this period. For anyone with even a passing interest in his work, this exhibition is an unmissable glimpse into Serra's early sculptural output.

^^^Fuck No.

Even if your not a fan of his mid and late-career "mega works" it's certainly worth a look at his early stuff. I for one prefer it.

I would have to agree with the first post and I am not really a fan of his later work either.

This looks like it'll be a fantastic show. What a great gallery to do it in as well, I'm heading there this weekend now for sure!
