The Films and Videos of Richard Serra - Program One

Introduction by Benjamin Buchloch
Screening on Film

This program sees Serra moving from the task-based minimalism of his earliest films—all of which depict a hand engaged in simple actions—to films that explore the various ways that the medium of film can transform the reality being photographed, whether through the imposition of a border in Frame, the way motion is rendered in Tina Turning, or the capturing of color and two-dimensional space in Color Aid.
