Following 2011's highly successful Junction/Cycle exhibition, the Gagosian Galley in New York presents another new body of work from the famed sculptor Richard Serra. New Sculpture – a series of works using weatherproof steel that were produced in 2013 – will close out the year in two of the gallery's New York locations. 7 Plates 6 Angles, Intervals, Grief and Reason (for Walter) and Counterweight 1 and Counterweight 2 will all be shown at the 24th Street location, while a single work Inside Out will be presented at the gallery on 21st Street. A preview of the exhibit begins tonight at 6pm, and will offer the first chance to take in what is bound to be a truly phenomenal new body of work from one of America's greatest modern sculptors.

Words

Just opened and running until June 22nd at Gagosian's Madison Avenue gallery, this immense show features over 400 black and white photographs taken by Dennis Hopper between 1961 and 1967. These images have not been exhibited in the US since 1970, and the "cultural events, iconic individuals, and intimate moments that caught Hopper’s attention, constitute a panoramic view of the sixties that combines political idealism and humanistic optimism with California cool." The show is a must-see for those with an interest in "the establishment-busting spirit of the 1960s," but The Lost Album is also an accessible body of work, worthy of widespread attention.

Hours: Mon-Sat 10-6

"The Picture Collection comprises forty-four works inspired by the New York Public Library’s picture archive, one of the august institution’s lesser-known troves. The archive contains 1.2 million prints, postcards, posters, and printed images, most of which have been cut from secondary sources, such as books and magazines. It is the largest circulating picture library in the world, organized according to a complex cataloging system of over 12,000 subject headings. Since its inception in 1915, it has been an important resource for writers, historians, artists, filmmakers, fashion designers, and advertising agencies. Diego Rivera, who made use of it for his legendary mural for the Rockefeller Center, Man at the Crossroads (1934), noted how the scope of this picture collection might go on to shape contemporary visions of America."

Richard Serra's Junction / Cycle at the Gagosian

—01. Cycle.

Words

Two new large scale works by Richard Serra are currently on display at the Gagosian Gallery and well worth an hour or so of your time if you happen to be anywhere close by. Junction / Cycle are both sculptures created in the artists preferred medium of waterproof steel, and in this case the oxidization of the material has turned the sculptures a striking bright orange colour, which offers plenty to those passing through the maze of the pieces themselves. Serra says the sculptures were designed as much with the space between them in mind, as with the form and materials used: "I consider space to be a material. The articulation of space has come to take precedence over other concerns. I attempt to use sculptural form to make space distinct."
