Some Thoughts About Richard Serra and Martin Puryear (Part 1: Serra)

Quotes from Richard Serra:

“Art is not democratic. It is not for the people.”

“My sculptures are not objects for the viewer to stop and stare at. The historical purpose of placing sculpture on a pedestal was to establish a separation between the sculpture and the viewer. I am interested in creating a behavioral space in which the viewer interacts with the sculpture in its context.”

“The content of the work is not the work. The meaning of the work is your experience inside the work. Or when you see it from far away, it has another meaning. But if all those things mean nothing to you, then it’s meaningless.”
