Originally scheduled to run until today, this exhibition, at London's Courtauld Gallery in the north wing of Somerset House, will now be open for another week. It comprises 12 drawings created specifically for the show and while the scale of these works does not compare with Serra's iconic sculptures, the dense compositions – produced on stacks of mylar plastic with black litho crayon – are no less innovative or engaging.

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.

Richard Serra – Early Work

Info

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

Words

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.

Richard Serra's Junction / Cycle at the Gagosian

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."
