About the Author
Richard Serra is an internationally renowned artist, best known for steel sculptures that engage audiences through material, form, structure, and site specificity. He has exhibited widely since his first solo exhibition in 1966 and has work publicly sited in Amsterdam, London, San Francisco, Bilbao, Berlin, Qatar, and elsewhere. Serra has been awarded the title of Chevalier de l'Ordre national de la Legion d'honneur and the J. Paul Getty Medal, among many other honors. Hal Foster is Townsend Martin, Class of 1917, Professor of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University. An award-winning author, his publications include Bad New Days, The Art-Architecture Complex, and The Return of the Real.
"Conversations' 250 plus pages, complete with a large number of black and white illustrations, makes for an almost always compelling give-and-take that begins with details of Serra's life and early career before fanning out into more open-ended discussions of art, art history, architecture, monumentality, and public space."--Jason E. Smith, Critical Inquiry
"The pulse and challenge of the exchange carries from beginning to end, and the narrative of Serra's practice that emerges is irresistible."-Jeffrey Weiss, independent curator and critic
