Constantin Brancusi and Richard Serra at Fondation Beyeler

Constantin Brancusi & Richard Serra at Fondation Beyeler in Riehen, Switzerland, brings together two of the most important sculptors of the 20th century. Both the oeuvre of Constantin Brancusi and the work of Richard Serra are shown in a comprehensive exhibition.

Constantin Brancusi’s work is represented by about 40 exemplary pieces, which are arranged in various thematic groupings. On display are different variants of “The Kiss”, “Children’s Heads”, “Sleeping Muses”, female torsos, and the “Birds in Space”, “Princess X”, “Adam and Eve”, and “Endless Column”.

The Fondation Beyeler selected ten different works from Richard Serra, among them are early pieces in rubber and lead, the steel sculpture “Strike: To Roberta and Rudy”, and the works “Olson” and Fernando Pessoa”.

The exhibition was curated by Oliver Wick, and conceived in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, which will present the exhibition from October 10, 2011. The exhibition at Fondation Beyeler runs through August 21, 2011.
