"Richard Serra: Drawings 2015–2017" is now on view at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam through September 24, 2017.

As he does in his sculptures, Serra exploits notions of time, working process, and material in his drawings. Strikingly, the drawings are more intimate, more direct and more restrained than his previous work.

“Trees appear as solid beings, but if we observe them through time, in their growth they become a fluid, malleable matter. A tree is a being that memorizes its own shape and this shape is necessary to its life. Therefore, it is a perfect sculptural structure, because it carries the necessity of existence.” —Giuseppe Penone.

Go check out Jeff Koons's "Seated Ballerina" before it closes this Monday, July 17, 2017.
“It’s a pleasure to work with Kiehl’s and Art Production Fund on this charitable project. This partnership will increase awareness and help the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children make the world a safer place for children. I hope the installation of 'Seated Ballerina' at Rockefeller Center offers a sense of affirmation and excitement to the viewer to reach their potential. The aspect of reflectivity emulates life’s energy; it’s about contemplation and what it means to be a human being. It’s a very hopeful piece.” —Jeff Koons.
