Over the years, Serra has expanded his spatial and temporal approach to sculpture and has focused primarily on large-scale work, including many site-specific works that engage with a particular architectural, urban, or landscape setting. This exhibition presents the artist’s forty-year career, from his early experiments with materials such as rubber, neon, and lead to monumental late-career pieces, including Intersection II (1992) and Torqued Ellipse IV (1999), along with three new works that have never been exhibited before.

Mission accomplished

Mission accomplished. More than any artist, Serra makes abstract art that people who hate abstraction can like.

Kynaston McShine (February 20, 1935 – January 8, 2018) was a Trinidadian born curator. His poetic, individualistic and unexpected visions about contemporary art made lasting contributions to the lives of countless artists and colleagues at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City where he worked from 1959 to 2008. He is said to be the first curator of color at a major American museum and at his retirement he had risen to the position of chief curator at large of painting and sculpture.

Kynaston L. McShine, Lynne Cooke, John Rajchman. Indeed, since his emergence in the mid-1960s, Serra is widely understood to have radicalized and extended the very definition of sculpture

The art of Richard Serra is internationally admired for its powerful material qualities and its searching exploration of the relationship between the work, the viewer and the site. Indeed, since his emergence in the mid-1960s, Serra is widely understood to have radicalized and extended the very definition of sculpture. Quite simply the most complete view to date of the work of one of the most important artists of the last half-century, Richard Serra Sculpture: Forty Years offers a detailed visual presentation and documentation of Serra's entire career, from his early experiments with materials like rubber, neon and lead to the environmentally scaled steel works of recent years--including three monumental new sculptures created for The Museum of Modern Art's 2007 retrospective, for which this volume was produced. The book contains major scholarly essays on the artist's work by Benjamin Buchloh, Lynne Cooke and John Rajchman, as well as an interview with the artist by Kynaston McShine, the Museum's Chief Curator at Large.

Risinal
This is the catalogue for the 2007 Serra exhibition at Moma in NY. Divided into four chapters, the first being an interview of the artist, the second focusing on the early works, the third on "Serra's abstract thinking" and the fourth on his sculptures in landscapes, it is a high-quality survey of the work of possibly the greatest sculptor alive.

The text is profound and scholarly, which makes this publication a valuable tool for art students and teachers.

However, the quality of the reproductions, all in black and white, could have been better: color photographs would have enabled the reader to see the interplay between sculptures and light and, of course, the effect of rust, both elements which, I think, are important in Serra's works.

I saw the exhibit at the New York MOMA and it was moving and breathtaking. I purchased the book afterwards from Amazon and was pretty disappointed by the pictures in the text. The black and white photos do not capture the essence or intrinsic qualities of the steel that Serra used. Further, the picture quality itself was poor, often out of focus or just a cheap job on printing. Perhaps the author just wanted to focus on the bare forms of the works. But the quality of the pages and prints are not what I'd expect from an exhibit at the MOMA.

This book is a stunning collection of Richard Serra's work over the years. Truly an American master. I am always intrigued by the choice to do Serra in black and white, but it works. I consider this book an essential addition to my collection of art texts.

I really recommend Richard Serra's Sculpture 40 years! I was in New York last year to see his retrospective at the moma and it is always nice to have a little reminder of those beautiful steel sculptures. The book gives you a great overview over his work, obviously concentrating on sculpture. Wonderful images and texts.

It is a marvelous Richard Serra book. It was really very attractive for us that it's been published by MOMA where the retrospective of forty years of his works was exhibited. The book gives you the great chance of a total glance to his sculptures throughout years. It is the most precious book of our library now.

Besides the extraordinary contents of the book, I was surprised by the correct and coherent service of delivery. Nice.
