The extraordinary installation of the Torqued Ellipses by Richard Serra at Dia on September 25, 1997 through June 14, 1998, is captured in this exhibition catalogue. Black and white photos document the ellipses as they are created at a steel mill in Baltimore and transported to and installed at Dia in New York. Photos of the models used for the finished pieces and reproductions of Serra's drawings give insight into the initial conception of the pieces. The interview with the artist by Lynne Cooke and Michael Govan concerns the concept and production of the Torqued Ellipses. Mark Taylor's essay documents Serra's development as a sculptor.
