Richard Serra and Hal Foster: Conversations about Sculpture

Hal Foster, Art and Archaeology

November 13, 2018 · 5:00 pm7:00 pm EST · Room N107, School of Architecture

M+M Program in Media & Modernity

Drawn from talks held over a fifteen-year period, Conversations about Sculpture is both an intimate look at Serra’s life and work, with candid reflections on personal moments of discovery, and a provocative examination of sculptural form from antiquity to today.

Serra and Foster explore such subjects as the artist’s work in steel mills as a young man; the impact of music, dance, and architecture on his art; the importance of materiality and site-specificity to his aesthetic; his belief in sculpture as experience; and the controversies and contradictions his work has faced.
