Fergus McCaffrey is pleased to present Richard Serra: Drawings, an exhibition of Orient drawings by one of America’s most prominent artists, opening at the gallery’s Tokyo location on June 20, 2020. This series of new drawings, all from 2018, titularly recognize the place in which they were produced: Orient, New York, on the Northern tip of Long Island. Characterized by the artist’s longstanding concerns with weight and process, these works avoid the trappings of metaphor and connotation, reveling instead in the physical qualities of the drawings’ material.
On the occasion of the exhibition, the gallery has published a comprehensive bilingual catalogue, featuring an original essay by foremost Mono-Ha scholar Minemura Toshiaki as well as the artist’s 2001 Belknap Lecture in the Humanities at Princeton University. Two forthcoming short films produced by the gallery will be released soon, chronicling Serra's drawing practice and illustrating his time in Japan.
