Richard Serra was born in San Francisco in 1938. He studied at the University of California (Berkeley and
Santa Barbara) and at Yale University. He has lived in New York since 1966. His first solo exhibitions were
held at Galleria La Salita, Rome (1966), and at the Leo Castelli Warehouse, New York (1969). His first solo
museum exhibition was presented at Pasadena Art Museum (1970). Serra has since participated in several
Documenta exhibitions (Kassel, 1972, 1977, 1982, and 1987), and in the Venice Biennales of 1980, 1984,
2001, and 2013. Serra’s work has been shown in numerous solo museum exhibitions at Stedelijk Museum,
Amsterdam (1977); Centre Pompidou, Paris (1984); Museum of Modern Art, New York (1986 and 2007); and
other museums in Europe, the U.S., and Latin America. In 2005, eight large-scale works were permanently
installed at Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. A traveling survey of Serra’s drawings was on view in 2011–12 at
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and Menil Collection,
Houston. In April 2014, Serra installed a major permanent landscape sculpture in the desert of the Brouq
Nature Reserve in western Qatar.
