Item description for Richard Serra: The Matter Of Time by Richard Serra, Robert Polidori & Dick Reinartz...

Richard Serra, renowned for his challenging and inventive work, is widely considered to be one of the greatest sculptors of the contemporary era. The Matter of Time documents Serra's recent commission by the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao of seven monumental sculptures for the largest gallery of the museum. Together with Snake (1994-97), the work that Serra created for the museum's grand opening, the sculptures create a permanent, site-specific installation of a scale and ambition unrivaled in modern history. Through a revealing interview-essay by noted critic Hal Foster, and writings and statements by the artist about his recent series Torqued Ellipses and the present, unprecedented commission, the book discloses the last 25 years of this sculptor's oeuvre and the evolution of his sculptural vocabulary as it relates to this installation. Other writings by Carmen Gimanez and a chronology by Kate Nesin help contextualize Serra's work.

Reviews - What do customers think about Richard Serra: The Matter Of Time?

little treasure  Sep 29, 2003
A wonderful little book to get you looking at Serra's work in a critical fashion. I haven't read all the essays just yet, but so far they've been quite good. A priori art history knowledge required, but none about Serra's work. Serra is certainly one of the greatest artists working today, so to have a little companion like this makes his work all the more interesting.
an excellent compilation  Sep 9, 2003
The Library Journal review above makes this book sound terrifyingly difficult. In fact, if you're the kind of person interested in buying a critical work on Serra, you're probably "up" enough to read this with ease. It's a loose collection of interviews, criticism and essays, including what I think is the best piece I've read on Serra yet, by Krauss. Not too much prior knowledge of contemporary art history is assumed, and the book is thankfully light on defining genres and sub-sub-genres in which to put Serra's work.
