Richard Serra, Slice, Leo Castelli Gallery, Poster, 1981
Richard Serra, “Slice,” Leo Castelli Gallery in collaboration with BlumHelman Gallery, February 28 – April 4, 1981. Poster, 21 x 30 inches. Originally folded and has some creasing.
The Leo Castelli Gallery was a particularly active publisher of exhibition posters. This work by Serra relates to a series of sculptures that aimed to reconfigure the spaces in which they are placed. “Slice” was designed specifically for Castelli’s new gallery on Greene Street. To optimally illustrate the work, the poster shows its placement in the gallery by reproducing a floor plan of the installation.
