Richard Serra

Richard Serra

Richard Serra is best known for his enormous COR-TEN steel sculptures installed within gallery spaces, urban environments, and landscapes, and his significant work has had an enormous influence on the contemporary art world. The artist was born in San Francisco in 1938. He received a B.A. from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1961 and an M.F.A. from the Yale University School of Art and Architecture in 1964. In the mid 1960s the artist moved to New York City where he began to create more intimate studio works in fiberglass, rubber, and lead. From 1970 onward, however, Serra began to sculpt on a much grander scale, focusing primarily upon site-specific installations in metal. The artist has taken part in numerous Documenta and Venice Biennale exhibitions. He has also been the subject of two retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art, NY, in 1986 and 2007 respectively. Serra was bestowed with a Legion of Honor from France in 2015.
