Richard Serra: Man of Steel

Series 12 - Episode 6 Richard Serra: Man of Steel



The life and work of modern artist Richard Serra, whose medium of choice is steel, which he forms to awe-inspiring effect into site-specific monoliths that aim to terrify and mesmerise in equal measure. Serra believes the viewer creates the sculpture for themselves by being within it, as is demonstrated when a diverse group of art-lovers give their impressions of some of his works. With contributions by Chuck Close, Philip Glass and Glenn D Lowry, director of New York's Museum of Modern Art.
