New Sculpture by Richard Serra

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. Richard Serra

Made of weatherproof steel, Transmitter (2020) measures 4 meters in height, 17.7 meters in width, and 18.2 meters in length, and will be installed in Gagosian Le Bourget’s vast main exhibition space.

In collaboration with the gallery, the Centre Pompidou in Paris will present a three-day retrospective in early 2022 of Serra’s films and videos, drawn from the museum’s collection as well as from the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. This is the first time that all of the artist’s film and video work will be shown together in Paris. The screenings will be held in Cinéma 2 of the Centre Pompidou.
