Richard Serra’s Sequence Returns
Sometimes a work of art leaves both metaphorical and physical marks, causing us to consider the physical space it occupied, as well as its impact, long after it’s gone. Such is the case with Richard Serra’s massive steel sculpture Sequence (2006), one of the distinguished artist’s greatest achievements. On loan and housed from 2011 to 2015 outdoors, near the Cantor’s North Lawn, Sequence literally left behind its footprint, reminding visitors where all 235 tons of it once stood. And now, after being indoors at SFMOMA for the past several years, Sequence is returning to the Cantor to stand again in the open air.
