Eerily placed in a quiet desert 60km outside of Doha at the Brouq Nature Reserve near Zekreet in Qatar, Richard Serra's magnificent "East-West/West-East" sculpture installation has now been unveiled. We say "eerie" in the Kubrick sense, monoliths left to wonder in a desert landscape, four steel plates that stand 49 feet tall that are set to be permanent fixtures in the reserve for the foreseeable future. Stunning work.

This past weekend we stopped by the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills for the opening reception of The Floor Show. group exhibition of floor-based sculpture organized in collaboration with curator Richard D. Marshall. The Floor Show explores the variety of ways contemporary artists have expanded the possibility of the sculptural medium by removing it from the once-compulsory pedestal. Photos and more after the jump..

Back in July 2011, Richard Serra's large scale, site-specific sculpture Sequence was installed at the Cantor Arts Center at Standford University. Transporting the piece is a major architectural endeavor, requiring the the piece to be deconstructed and eventually reassembled in a tedious process involving heavy-duty trailers, cranes, and careful positioning, clamping, and welding.

We were lucky enough to attend the preview of Richard Serra Drawing: A Retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art this past week. Perhaps even more importantly, Mr. Serra, the San Francisco native, was in attendance at the preview, providing an illuminating context about his works and his origins in sculpture and drawing.
