Artist Richard Serra discusses his sketches of a Le Corbusier building in Ronchamp, France, as an example of an architectural space that has inspired him.
Richard Serra: "Fernando Pessoa" (2007-2008). Texto de Alain de Botton: We're often intensely lonely in our suffering. In an upbeat world that worships success, our miseries feel shameful. We're not only sad, we're sad at being the only ones that seem to be so. We can't remove suffering from life, but we can learn to suffer more successfully – that is, with less of a sense of persecution or an impression that we have unfairly been singled out for punishment. Fernando Pessoa is a beautifully dark monumental work by Richard Serra, named after a Portuguese poet with a turn for lamentation ("Oh salty sea/ how much of your salt is tears from Portugal"). The work does not deny our sorrows, it does not tell us to cheer up or point us in a brighter direction. The large scale and monumental character of this sombre sculpture declare the normality and universality of grief. It is confident that we will recognise and respond to the legitimate place of solemn emotions in an ordinary life. Rather than leaving us alo ...

One thing about being in the Village is that you get private teaching from N.Y.U. professors who may be frustrated, bored, ageing out, but are unbelievably brilliant in the history of their field. You also end up meeting professors from schools like Yale Architecture which is how I got mentored by my architect. You also meet people who bring you and themselves down by being scum bags instead of letting their art be their woman. Some of them, like Richard Serra and Julian Schnabel live these “name” lives without being seen and when they do, they know they are on a New York times quiz show like in the 1950’s and come up with terms like “a moniker” which Serra used to describe how the media can define an art work of his such as that it looks like “a cemetery,” and becomes known as “the cemetery,” rather than understanding what Serra was trying to do. Serra is in denial about what he was trying to do. He may have been playing a nasty power game with his successor, Lee Ufan, or to flip th ...

Thomas Lail's TOP(almost )20 of 2013... No one asked me for my top picks this year, but I thought I'd list them anyway. Full disclosure-- Many of these are folks I know and admire. It's a small world after all... In no particular order: 1). An Armory Show at Opalka Gallery, Sage Colleges-- this sprawling, cacophonous salon orchestrated by Michael Oatman and Ken Ragsdale set a high water mark for future Upstate regional art surveys--- I was in this show, but that's not what made it a pick for me-- with 50+ artists it was crazy, packed, riotous and really good. 2). Ed Osborne at The Teaching Gallery, HV- RI based sound and video artist Osbourne shaped a beautiful and meditative space of slow moving boats and slower moving race cars. 3). Mike Watt at Valentines-- the real deal,himself-- The Man in The Van with a Bass in His Hand rolled into V'tines with his Missingmen to thunder through a massive reading of his masterpiece Hyphenated Man --uninterrupted -- except for two restarts due to broken strin ...

Richard Serra voted for himself in ‘Vanity Fair’s’ greatest living artist poll
Many travel to Europe to eperience the spiritual in the great cathederals...for a more contemporary experience look to Bilbao,and the Guggenheim Museum. the magical experience is on the outside in its power and soaring and curving planes...and in the light filled spaces on the inside. Adding to the building,s beauty is the time/space conceptual art form by Richard Serra. I have never been a big fan of conceptual art,,but I realize now that it has to be experienced..not just viewed. The participant walks at his/her own pace through tall wooden curving spirals and structures. Encounters, light forms and sounds are random and individual. Meditation begins and the outer world does not exsist.

History of ARS Artists Rights Society (ARS) is the preeminent copyright, licensing, and monitoring organization for visual artists in the United States. Founded in 1987, ARS represents the intellectual property rights interests of over 50,000 visual artists and estates of visual artists from around the world (painters, sculptors, photographers, architects and others). ARS' membership derives from two sources. First, ARS represents American artists who become its direct adherents and it represents foreign artists who are members of affiliated arts organizations abroad. A complete list of ARS' American members is to be found in the “Artists Represented” section of this site; it includes such names as Milton Avery, Alexander Calder, Sam Francis, Arshile Gorky, Red Grooms, Robert Indiana, Sol LeWitt, Willem de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Barnett Newman, Bruce Nauman, Georgia O'Keeffe, Jackson *** Ad Reinhardt, Susan Rothenberg, Mark Rothko, Richard Serra, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, Frank Lloyd Wright, and ...

Matthew Barney, o maridinho da Bjork, !? Masonic references in the Cremaster Cycle In Cremaster 3, the last to be made, "New York’s Chrysler Building is a temple of verticality, a masonic power centre, a constellation of evil forces. " says Jonathan Jones in The Guardian for Wednesday October 16, 2002. "In Barney’s fantasy, it is the masterpiece of sinister architect and Freemason, Hiram Abiff, played by the American sculptor Richard Serra." Barney’s character is the Entered Apprentice. "Mormon religious beliefs, masonic initiation rites, the Celtic giant Fingal and his nemesis Finn MacCool, Irish Republicanism, the Man in Black, the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, American football, Norman Mailer, Harry Houdini, the Great Salt Lake, satyrs and nymphs, grand opera, the Legs of Man: these and other tropes Barney wheels out and wheels away."

LACMA//LA//A few notes= I went to LACMA while in LA, and since I'm already well behind in writing reviews I'll condense a few notes on it into this here post. 1.A group of kids LOVED Richard Serra's works, almost as much as they loved Chris Burden's Metropolis II which is saying something; I have video evidence of this. 2.Walter De Maria's huge piece is so-so, made worse with the statistics about scale and weight in the wall text. 3.The Caravagio show... eh. While it is great to see the masterworks in person, the gallery was full of people standing a mile away from the works with the audio tour on. Just look at the work, get up close! What do you see? Lets talk about it! There is so much in even a single one of these works that several rooms of them felt awkward and blurry. 4.The collection show up now is incredible; tons of great pieces in there such as wonderful pieces by James Welling, Uta Barth, Frances Stark, Barbara Kasten to name a few. 5. Steve McQueen's 'Static', a view from a helicopter flying a ...
February 20, 2013 Since leaving San Sebastian, my trip has been looking at amazing art. First: the Guggenheim in Bilbao. Wow! Not only the amazing architecture by Frank Gehry with its interlocking shapes, combination of different materials such as blocks of limestone combined with curved and bent forms covered in titanium, and glass curtain walls, but the collection itself is amazing! Works by Jeff Koons (his Tulips, Bubbles, and Puppy, the latter composed by flowers, Richard Serra who created a variety of works specifically for the museum, enabling me to understand him better, and Claus Oldenberg, among others), provided a lot of information for my future lectures. And I stayed in a fabulous hotel that I would recommend to anyone—Meliã Bilbao. It was one of the most comfortable and luxurious hotels I have ever been in and located close to the Guggenheim. I had room service for dinner followed by a massage—which turned out to be a horrible message, but oh well . . . . I then left for Madrid. The weat ...
A short essay for small catalogue for Feb 7 exhbit at Rove Projects, 33-34 Hoxton Square, London N1 6NN The Kitchen Sink Abstractions of Helen A. Pritchard Imagine taking a Kurt Schwitters collage and pulling it through steel rollers used to torque a hefty Richard Serra sculpture. Once all the allusions to anything representational from 3D objects to text or recognizable imagery has been squished into neutrality or at least flatness, you are left with what would resemble a Helen Pritchard painting. The intimate scale of previous works has been abandoned in favor of a larger format, which rather than giving the shapes more room to spread out and breathe—like chickens in a new coop—the forms are now more congested and huddled together with a nervous, restless energy. They call to mind the paintings of noted German abstractionist Albert Oehlen, though with much less ceremony and affectation. The works of Pritchard are explorations, seemingly unsure of where they’re going, but content with the journey t ...
The lawsuit between the billionaire investor Ron Perelman and his former “friend”, mega-dealer Larry Gagosian, is turning very nasty. Last week Gagosian’s lawyers filed a motion to dismiss the suit in a New York state court, accusing Perelman of being a “deadbeat – and then a bully” and of using the proceedings “to take public swipes at Gagosian”.Perelman took Gagosian to court last year over a deal involving a $4m Koons “Popeye” sculpture. Perelman ordered it through Gagosian and also bought a $10.5m painting and a $12.5m sculpture, identified by the New York Times as being a Cy Twombly and a Richard Serra respectively. However the Koons was not delivered in time and Perelman “paid” for the Twombly and Serra by returning the rights to the Koons to Gagosian, plus giving other “unwanted” works of art to the dealer. Perelman claimed that he lost millions of dollars because Gagosian undervalued the exchange price of “Popeye”, and that there was a secret agreement with Koons fo ...
Richard Serra (born November 2, 1939) is an American minimalist sculptor and video artist known for working with large-scale assemblies of sheet metal. Serra was involved in the Process Art Movement. He lives and works in Tribeca, New York, and on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. Serra was born in San Francisco as the second of three sons. His father, Tony, was Spanish native of Mallorca and his mother, Gladys, was Russian from Odessa (she committed suicide in 1979). He went on to study English literature at the University of California, Berkeley and later at the University of California, Santa Barbara between 1957 and 1961. While at Santa Barbara, he studied art with Howard Warshaw and Rico Lebrun. On the West Coast, he helped support himself by working in steel mills, which was to have a strong influence on his later work. Serra discussed his early life and influences in an interview in 1993. He described the San Francisco shipyard where his father worked as a pipe-fitter as another important ...

Sitting in the old town in Bilbao with the inevitable beer and tapas. The Guggenheim is astonishing. The contents can't really live up to the incredible building. Frank Gehry definite genius. Big exhibition by Claes Oldenberg. Usual mix of the obvious and the rather asbergers. Whatever. Lots of amazing Richard Serra though.
Richard Serra in a showdown with the Broad Collection
Fascinating questions over artist moral rights raised in this- Richard Serra threatens to remove work from collection:
Most artists, curators and collectors can agree on the importance of art conservation. But the politics of "reworking" an artwork, whether altering the surface or creating a new piece from an old concept, gets complicated.

Richard Serra is for me, one of the most intriguing sculptors of our time. It is not because the scale of his works are like football fields, but because the steel and the shapes and most of all his life story. You know that has always been my “thing” so to speak, the history.

Excellent informative evening last night at CHAPMAN UNIVERSITY Art Beyond the Gallery: Art as Catalyst in Everyday Life. It was a pleasure to meet Brian Lang BNY Mellon Curator, Corporate Art Collection in enriching conversation. Pleased to hear the passion and importance of corporate and private collecting through galleries. Looking forward to developing our relationship among others met last night as well. Also viewed a small portion of the extensive Phyllis and Ross Escalette Permanent Collection of Art including the newest large Richard Serra acquisition along with a large Tony DeLap directly across. Both are absolutely stunning! This collection carries my highest recommendation. Definitely going back to visit and study the entire collection on a private invitation from Collection Manager David Michael Lee.

7, 2008 Serra’s Monumental Vision, Vertical Edition By STEVEN ERLANGER PARIS — France is making a fuss this week over Richard Serra, the 68-year-old American bantamweight who fashions elegant, gargantuan art out of steel. On Wednesday Mr. Serra opens the annual solo show called Monumenta in the echoing Grand Palais; the city of Paris has restored one of his earlier works to its proper place in the garden of the Tuileries; and he has been made a commander of the Order of Arts and Letters of the French Academy — a two-rank leap from his previous knighthood, the starter kind usually given to singers like Kylie Minogue, who recently received hers. France has always welcomed Mr. Serra, even before he became iconic, in the days when some of his work in America was dismantled for scrap. President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife, Carla, are expected to attend the opening of “Monumenta,” prompting Mr. Serra to ask, “What U.S. president would do that?” But the sheer scale of Mr. Serra’s work has always ...

~The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plains~ Well this time it followed us all the way to our final destination, Pamplona! Today although it was a very wet day, we enjoyed ourselves very much. We started at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. We saw sculptures by Richard Serra and landscape paintings by David Hockney. We continued our journey to San Sebastian, on the shores of the Bay of Biscayne. We finished the day in Pamplona where Hemingway popularized in one of his novels the running of the bulls. Tomorrow we go to Saragossa and Barcelona.

Busy day. Just now getting to bed. Went to Spectrum Glass, saw the nugget machines and the Robo-Ladle. Pretty freaking awesome. Then hit the Space Needle and Chinguily Garden. Color explosion in my face. Olympic Sculpture Garden: highlights were Richard Serra piece and Alexander Calder's Eagle. Ate lunch down in Pike Place Market at the Crying Pig (El Puerco Ilonon). Stopped by Seattle Glassblowing Studio, Vetri, and Traver. Then hiked back to Pratt. Dinner with some friends at Ivar's Seafood. Probably walked 10-15 miles today. Finally time for some rest. The dogs are a barkin'.
So glad that I made the trip to Bilbao; although a long fast-train ride (over 6 hours) the country side/scenery is very different from anything I've seen here. Very rocky, sandy, arid; rusty red (iron) and sandy brown coloring; not very green. Small Mountains (cliff looking) in the near distance; the Pyrenees. Bilbao is really quite pretty, Lots and lots of Art Nouveau architecture. Spent most of today at The Guggenheim Museum (a huge David Hockney exhibition; also Richard Serra's immense permanent installation, 'The Matter of Time"; then stated my tour of the old Gothic city area; will finish that sight seeing tomorrow, including a cathedral or two, undoubtedly. And now some more of my usual "observations". When walking, continental Europeans seem to have no sense of "keeping to the right"; rather everyone attempts to walk in the middle. No wash clothes to be had; and the smallest bars of soap you have ever seen; just large enough to get you through one shower. No waste though ... *** French men seem to ...

Hmmm interesting! Larry Gagosian being interviewed by Folha De Sâo Paulo, giving his opinion on art collecting and economic crisis. Gagosian, for those who are not aware is perhaps the leading art collector and dealer in the world. He has handled sales of Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, Warhol, Picasso as well as Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, and Richard Serra. 'even with an economic crisis there is a huge concentration of money in other parts of the world..China,Korea, Japan and; suprisingly Brasil is growing in terms of market share. Gagosian stated: 'even with a crisis worldwide there is tremendous wealth in the hands of very few people, they need to invest their money somewhere and great art, important art both historically and culturally never loses value.'

HOROWITZ 09 March – 30 April 2011Art, History 4 New Burlington Place London W1Jonathan Horowitz‟s latest exhibition with Sadie Coles HQ, Art, History, comprises a major new body of work which responds to the minimalist works on permanent display at the Holocaust Memorial Museum, Washington DC. Combining sculpture, installation and video, Horowitz mounts a subtle critique of the use of minimalist aesthetics as a means of memorialising the Holocaust, while exploring wider concepts of collective memory and the malleability of visual signs and symbols.Horowitz has criticised the austere abstraction of the Holocaust Museum works as impotent in their singular context: “in the face of one of the worst things that‟s ever happened, art is represented as having nothing to say.” His new works paraphrase the museum‟s four major exhibits (by Ellsworth Kelly, Joel Shapiro, Sol LeWitt and Richard Serra), and yet inject the pure aesthetics of minimalism with specific symbolic connotations. Pink Curve (2010) c ...

MGM Mirage has repaved its yellow brick road, switching to a décor featuring black-and-white photographs of movie stars, Art Deco accoutrements and, of course, the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer lion symbol. Tucked away behind that glowing, green behemoth is perhaps Vegas' best-kept secret: The Mansion at MGM Grand. The Mansion’s take on Tuscany would make a Medici feel at home. The gardens were designed after those at one of the family's estates. No expense was spared in creating this exquisite property, which includes 30 apartment-style villas (each with its own indoor pool), a private casino, two spas, high-tech screening and conference rooms, and $1 million worth of area rugs. The Mansion also boasts an art collection that puts Vegas' Guggenheim Hermitage Museum to shame, ranging from Tang dynasty horse sculptures and 16th-century Portuguese tapestries to works by Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Claes Oldenburg, Henri Matisse and Richard Serra.
