NYC Vignettes: The Gallery Scene, Richard Serra’s Inside Out

Richard Serra's Inside Out at the Gagosian Gallery

Richard Serra’s Inside Out at the Gagosian Gallery

I am familiar with Richard Serra because he has a sculpture, The Wave, at the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle.



And when I was at Storm King Art Center, I saw his Schunnemunk Fork.


So I was delighted to learn that the Gagosian Gallery in Chelsea was showing another of Serra’s massive steel sculptures.  Called Inside Out, you felt invited to follow its curves like a maze, albeit a short one.  Standing in the narrow gap between the high walls was similar to being in a slot canyon.  I loved this.
