Richard Serradrawings 2015–2017
On the occasion of the exhibition, Richard Serra: Drawings 2015–2017, the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam created a video in partnership with ARTtube, that includes new and archival interviews with Richard Serra. The video investigates the interrelated nature of these drawings with Serra’s larger art practice as well as their physicality and emphasis on process. Some of the archival footage gives a rare look at the first installation of Serra’s Waxing Arcs (1980/1999), on permanent display at the museum.
