RICHARD SERRA (b. 1939)
Richard Serra was born in San Francisco in 1939 and eduated at Yale University. He has exhibited extensively in major museums and exhibitions throughout the world, and has created site-specific sculptures for both public and private venues in North America and Europe. Serra's work, at the forefront of sculpture in the late 20th Century, considers the relationship between movement and spatial awareness. His work is both destabilizing and yet immense in it's solidity. Amongst Serra's most recent projects are an exhibition at the Museo Archeologico and Piazza Plebiscito in Naples (2004), and an eight-part permanent installation The Matter of Time at the Guggenheim Bilbao, which was inaugurated in 2005.
