Remembering Richard Serra

Richard Serra, America’s greatest sculptor, died at his home in Orient, New York, on March 26 of this year. He was 85. In 2017 we interviewed Mr. Serra in the morning after the opening of an exhibition of his sculpture and drawings at the David Zwirner Gallery in New York. He was gracious and intense. He told us about his ongoing interest in what he called “the rhythm of the body through space”. That interest resulted in objects, made over more than 55 years, that changed the way the world regards the art of sculpture.

The interview was recorded on November 5, 2017 and is now available in its entirety here.
