NEW YORK, NY.- Gagosian Gallery
will present two important sculptures by Richard Serra. Related in both form and scale, "Blind Spot" (2002-2003) and "Open Ended" (2007-2008) entail similar concentric structures, each consisting of six weatherproof steel plates. "Open Ended" was recently exhibited at Gagosian Gallery in London in 2008. The upcoming exhibition brings both sculptures together for the first time.
Serra produces unparalleled large-scale sculptures, many of which are in major museum and private collections worldwide. "Blind Spot / Open Ended" is his first major exhibition in the United States since the retrospective "Richard Serra, Sculpture: Forty Years" at the Museum of Modern Art, New York in 2007.
In 2008 he installed "Promenade," a course of five massive vertical steel elements, each towering more than fifty feet, at the Grand Palais in Paris for the MONUMENTA exhibition. That same year, a survey of his drawings from 1989-2008 entitled "Richard Serra: Drawings --Work Comes Out of Work" was exhibited at the Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria.
