Richard Serra: Torqued Ellipses


Members $22.00

The extraordinary first installation of Richard Serra's Torqued Ellipses at Dia in September 1997 is captured in this exhibition catalogue. Black-and-white photos document the ellipses as they are created at a steel mill in Baltimore and transported to and installed at Dia in New York. Photos of the models used for the finished pieces and reproductions of Serra's drawings give insight into the initial conception of the pieces. The interview with the artist by Lynne Cooke and Michael Govan concerns the concept and production of the Torqued Ellipses. Mark Taylor's essay documents Serra's development as a sculptor.
