Richard Serra exhibits
American sculptor Richard Serra, who is known in Qatar for his vertical steel sculpture that is permanently exhibited in MIA Park, has been invited to exhibit in two Doha-based cultural spaces in the coming months. Both exhibitions, entitled ‘Richard Serra’, are curated by Alfred Pacquement of the National Museum of Modern Art, Centre Pompidou Paris. At Al Riwaq, ‘Passage of Time’ consists of two 70-metre steel curves that need to be seen from multiple angles. Meanwhile, at the QMA Gallery in Katara Cultural Village, a selection of seven sculptures and four large drawings present the main stages in the development of Serra’s work, providing historical context for the exhibit at Al Riwaq.
