Volume includes a Foreword, an essay titled _The Un/Making of Sculpture_ by Hal Foster, Plates with Notes by the Artist, an Interview by David Sylvester, an Exhibition Chronology, Selected Biography and a list of the Complete Works. Published in conjunction with the exhibition titled _Richard Serra_ of the artist's works at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles 20 September 1998 to January 1999. Richard Serra is known for his large-scale site-specific installation sculpture in steel though he has also produced work in rubber, neon and lead. Bringing to mind both man-made industrialism as much as the tranquility of natural forms, Serra's work at their incredible size and particular placement evoke a sense of expansiveness and minute attention to place. That exploration of the relationship between viewer, installation and site is readily evident in the artist's urban works which invite the viewer to walk into and through and around them exploring the topography of the site itself. Truly a gift-worthy volume.
