About

Gagosian is pleased to present two important sculptures by Richard Serra. Related in both form and scale, Blind Spot (2002–03) and Open Ended (2007–08) entail similar concentric structures, each consisting of six weatherproof steel plates. Open Ended was recently exhibited at Gagosian in London in 2008. The upcoming exhibition brings both sculptures together for the first time.
