Richard Serra: Transmitter


Richard Serra has produced large-scale sculptures for architectural, urban, and landscape settings spanning the globe. This volume, published to coincide with a 2021–22 exhibition at Gagosian Le Bourget in Paris, presents a recent sculpture by the artist: Transmitter (2020). Made of weatherproof steel, Transmitter is monumental in scale, measuring approximately 4 meters in height and 18 meters in width and length. Here, immersive installation views of the sculpture within the vast exhibition space of Gagosian Le Bourget in Paris are accompanied by plate photography of fourteen recent works on paper by the artist. A new text by art historian Maria Stavrinaki (in English and French) reads Serra’s long sculptural practice through three formal, temporal, and political moments.
