In New York, It's Richard Serra vs. James Turrell
With both iconic artists putting on double gallery shows, Instagrammers are having a field day. The question is: Whose art Instagrams better?
Fresh from unloading 214 tons of metal into the new SFMoMA, Richard Serra rolled out more of his massive sculptures back on the East Coast this week, adding a series of mazes and monoliths to both Chelsea locations of Gagosian Gallery. Meanwhile, James Turrell is also pulling double duty, lending a hazy glow to Pace Gallery’s Chelsea and Midtown spaces with light projections he first conceived in the ’60s. It’s simple math: Double the Instagrammable artists means quadruple the Instagram opportunities – even in the dark or the labyrinth.
