Richard Serra Drawing: A Retrospective

New York’s Metropolitan Museum is hosting until the 28th of August the first retrospective of drawings by contemporary North-American artist Richard Serra, presenting a comprehensive overview of forty years of his drawing activity.

The exhibition presents the evolution of Serra’s drawings throughout the 1970’s (when he turned to black paintstick, a crayon comprised of a mixture of pigment, oil, and wax, creating heavily textured works, frequently very large in scale) to recent times.

The show culminates in site-specific, large-scale works that, despite not yet reaching the monumental size of his maxisculptures, still produces a spatial effect that is equally disorienting to the senses.
