They should take a walk over to the Moma to see Richard Serra – Inside! Not the person, of course – but a few of his pieces. If anyone (everyone) hasn’t heard of Serra, he’s a sculptor that works usually on massive scales. Usually site-specific installations that interact, are set into the landscape, respond to the earth, sky, whatever else encircles them. But these are museaum pieces. They are still massive, at least by indoor standards.
“He’s serious about his work, which he repeats ‘comes out of work,’ serious about making space with massive plates of Cor-Ten steel.”
