I took a couple of minutes on my lunch break today and walked over to the two Gagosian locations here in Chelsea. If you haven’t heard, which I am sure by now you have, they are currently showing an exhibition of new work by Richard Serra. Of course the contents of the show are the predictable steel megaliths Serra has become known for, but it is still great to stand alone in a stark white space next to some massive post industrial scale metal forms. The scale successfully removes you from the norm as soon as you walk into a room or in better terms a hangar that is housing one. I highly recommend popping over to Chelsea to see the show being exhibited through January 2014 in their 21st Street and 24th Street galleries.
