Richard Serra: Drawings 2015–2017

Texts by Albert Camus, Neil Cox, Francesco Stocchi, and Michelle White

Published on the occasion of Richard Serra: Drawings 2015–2017: Rambles, Composites, Rotterdam Verticals, Rotterdam Horizontals, Rifts at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, this catalog is an in-depth look at the artist’s recent drawing practice.

The exhibition encompasses more than 70 works from five different series, Rambles, Composites, Rifts, Rotterdam Horizontals, and Rotterdam Verticals, many of which have never been seen before publicly, as well as a selection of his notebooks and films. Examining the ways properties inherent to sculpture are brought onto paper, the drawings are epistemological adjuncts to Serra’s lifelong sculptural explorations.

Designed by McCall Associates in close collaboration with the artist, Drawings 2015–2017 features new scholarship by art historian Neil Cox and exhibition curator Francesco Stocchi, a chronology of the drawings by curator Michelle White, as well as a historical text by Albert Camus selected by Serra. This book introduces readers to Serra’s most recent series and reaffirms his innovation and contribution to the practice of drawing.
