The interview: Richard Serra

He may indeed be all these things but he is also, it turns out, a great storyteller. One of his best anecdotes concerns his turbulent years as a student at Yale in the early Sixties, where he came of age in an intensely creative milieu that included the artists Frank Stella, Chuck Close and Nancy Graves, a classmate who became his first wife. 'I was thrown out of Yale for something real stupid,' says Serra, stern features dissolving into a childlike grin. 'Robert Rauschenberg came up there as a visiting critic.

Being a bit sparky back then, I thought I'd see what he was made of. You can see that Serra relishes the memory of that rebellious moment even though it almost cost him his scholarship.

“It's all about centralizing the space in different ways. How people move in relation to space, that's essentially what I'm up to,” he has said. Inspired early in his career by modern dance—notably through his relationship with members of New York City’s influential Judson Church dancers—and Japanese Zen gardens, the artist sought to create works that engage viewers in movement, taking in his large-scale sheet-metal pieces by navigating the space around them. New Serras for Bilbao.: EBSCOhost. Infinite Passages: Serra in Bilbao.: EBSCOhost. Diving into the color theory of Josef Albers will forever change the way you perceive and approach color.

Albers began as a student at the Bauhaus in Germany and later became an instructor, which he considered an honor, and took the position very seriously. Unfortunately, the Bauhaus was forced out by the Nazis, and Albers was one of the members who emigrated to the United States in 1933. Albers continued his Bauhaus teachings at Black Mountain College and later at Yale. Through teaching, his own painting, and learning from his students as they developed, he created his own color theory outlined in the 1963 classic Interaction of Color.

The book is simple in its presentation and the ideas are easy to understand. Albers makes numerous comparisons of color to tone in music and even cooking. The same applies to art – all design practices, architecture, building furniture, etc. Just like in music, color can be harmonious or dissonant. Below is a practice example.

Richard Serra

After studying at the University of California at Berkeley and at Santa Barbara, he graduated in 1961 with a BA in English literature.

He’s been close to the industry that creates his signature material for half a century: Decades before achieving critical and popular acclaim, he joined a U.S. Steel rivet gang to put himself through Yale. Since the 1970s, he has relied on a family of New York riggers to erect his installations. These complex engineering projects—requiring steel sheets to be manipulated in unprecedented ways—have led to radical innovation at the plant that fabricates them. Life's Work: EBSCOhost.

The interview: Richard Serra. An Introduction to Minimalism. Donald Judd, Untitled, 1969, ten copper units, each 9 x 40 x 31 inches with 9 inch intervals (Guggenheim Museum, New York)A Reductive Abstract Art Although many works of art can be described as “minimal,” the name Minimalism refers specifically to a kind of reductive abstract art that emerged during the early 1960s. At the time, some critics preferred names like “ABC,” “Boring,” or “Literal” Art, and even “No-Art Nihilism,” which they believed best summed up the literal presentation and lack of expressive content characterizing this new aesthetic. While scholars have recently argued for a broader definition of Minimalism that would include artists in number of disciplines, the term remains closely linked to sculpture of the period. Donald Judd’s Untitled (1969) is characteristic in its use of spare geometric forms, repeated to create a unified whole that calls attention to its physical size in relationship to the viewer.
