Behind-The-Pieces: The Serra Collection
The Serra pieces were named after Richard Serra, a minimalist sculptor, known for working with large-scale assemblies of sheet metal - bending it and folding it to create awe-inspiring sculptures that have been displayed around the world.
He was a part of the Process Art Movement; an artistic movement, born in the 1960s, in which art is not the main focus; it is not about the final product, but about its formation; the gathering, the sorting, the process. Change and transience are marked themes in the movement.
