Richard Serra was born in San Francisco in 1938. He studied at the University of California (Berkeley and Santa Barbara) and at Yale University. He has lived in New York since 1966. His first solo exhibitions were held at Galleria La Salita, Rome (1966), and at the Leo Castelli Warehouse, New York (1969). His first solo museum exhibition was presented at Pasadena Art Museum (1970). Serra has since participated in several Documenta exhibitions (Kassel, 1972, 1977, 1982, and 1987), and in the Venice Biennales of 1980, 1984, 2001, and 2013. Serra’s work has been shown in numerous solo museum exhibitions at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (1977); Centre Pompidou, Paris (1984); Museum of Modern Art, New York (1986 and 2007); and other museums in Europe, the U.S., and Latin America. In 2005, eight large-scale works were permanently installed at Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. A traveling survey of Serra’s drawings was on view in 2011–12 at Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and Menil Collection, Houston. In April 2014, Serra installed a major permanent landscape sculpture in the desert of the Brouq Nature Reserve in western Qatar.

I function more as an editor. In other words, I could draw people out, maybe in the way a director does with a performer. And bring them into the circle of creative work.
Gagosian Athens is pleased to present photographs by Richard Avedon, following the career-spanning exhibition “Avedon: Women” at Gagosian Beverly Hills in late 2013.
Avedon’s reportage, portraiture, and fashion work dissolved the lines between photographic genres and covered a breadth of subjects, from figures both famous and anonymous to historic moments of the American Civil Rights Movement and the fall of the Berlin Wall. From the beginning of his career as a fashion photographer in the 1940s, he was particularly renowned for his distinctive and transformative imagery of women.
