Richard Serra and the New SFMoMA

RICHARD SERRA
SFMoMA, San Francisco
Reopens May, 2016

 June of 2013, SFMoMA closed its doors to the public in order to undergo a major expansion. Working with the architecture firm Snøhetta, the expansion will double the museum's previous size and will offer a number of free galleries to the public. One of these free public galleries, Roberts Family Gallery, will house Richard Serra's Sequence. In fact, the massive steel sculpture was the first work to be installed in the new building! Check out a video of the installation here. With the expansion nearing its completion, the museum is set to reopen May 14th, 2016.

Richard Serra participated in the Vera List Art Project in 2010 with his edition Hand Catching Lead, available here.
