The New York Times calls Serra “today’s greatest living sculptor of Minimalist abstraction” who at 76 is still “wrangling fundamentals of shape, space, gravity and time into objects and installations of thrilling severity.”

A walk-through his Every Which Way installation, made up of a labyrinth of enormous slabs of steel of three different heights, can get overwhelming, especially for Nanocat.
