Richard Serra Open Ended (2008-09)

Recession-defying transnational gallery empire Gagosian just announced their next major New York exhibition: two recent sculptures by Richard Serra to be installed in their 21st Street bunker in Chelsea. Artdaily reports that on October 27 two pieces, Open Ended (2008-09) (pictured) and Blind Spot (2003) will be unveiled in Chelsea, and exhibited through December 23.

“Open Ended” was first exhibited last year at Gagosian’s London gallery, but this will mark the first presentation of works by Serra in the U.S. since his major retrospective at MoMA in 2007. Though presumably not quite as insanely popular as this summer’s Picasso show, expect lines and queues to walk through Serra’s architectural sculptures—which you should totally take the time to do regardless of waiting times, obviously.
