Retrospective de dessins de Richard Serra

October 15, 2011 - January 16, 2012

Richard Serra's massive steel sculptures have made him one of the key figures in contemporary art, but his work also takes another striking form: drawing. This first-ever retrospective of Serra's drawings is a chance to see this major artist's work from an entirely new angle. The exhibition traces Serra's evolving ideas and methods since the 1970s, when he began making wall-size abstractions that radically altered the relationship between drawing and architectural space. Serra uses black paintstick to build stark, densely layered forms that manipulate the viewer's sense of mass and gravity, making for an experience that is as visceral as it is visual. The SFMOMA presentation also features a selection of the artist's earliest sculptures in lead, rubber, and fiberglass, demonstrating the vital connection between the processes of sculpting and drawing in Serra's art.
