Richard Serra: 7 @ MIA Park, Doha, Qatar

Image & Text via ARTINFO

Richard Serra's "7," 2011, composed of 7 steel plates that are 80 feet high, 8 feet wide, and 4 inches thick, the sculpture is 10 feet wide at the bottom and 9 feet wide at the top. On view in the new MIA Park, Doha, Qatar.

"The content of the work is not the work. The meaning of the work is your experience inside the work. Or when you see if from far away, it has another meaning. But if all those things mean nothing to you, then it's meaningless," said the artist, hard at work explaining the seven plates of German Cor-ten steel that stretch 80 feet into the air, making it Serra's tallest sculpture yet — and his first public commission in the Middle East.
