Best known for site-specific sculptures in steel, Serra has much to say about the relation of sculpture to place, whether urban, natural or architectural, and about the nature of art itself, whether political, decorative or personal. In interviews with writers including Douglas and Davis Sylvester, he discusses specific installations and offers insights into his approach to the problem each presents. Interviews by Peter Eisenman and Alan Colquhoun elicit Serra's thoughts on the relation of architecture to contemporary sculpture, a primary component in his own work. From essays like “Extended Notes from Sight Point Road” to Serra's extended commentary on the “Tilted Arc” fiasco, the pieces in this volume comprise a document of one artist's engagement with the practical, philosophical and political problems of art.
