Summer Sculpture -- Richard Serra -- Sir Anthony Caro

MONUMENTA is an essential date in the contemporary art calendar. Each year, MONUMENTA invites a leading artist to engage with the monumental nave of the Grand Palais through the creation of a series of new works. After Anselm Kiefer in 2007, Richard Serra took up the MONUMENTA challenge in 2008.

This year's Summer Exhibition features a sculptural installation by Sir Anthony Caro RA in the Royal Academy's Annenberg Courtyard. Consisting of five free-standing painted steel structures , was originally created for the Tuileries Gardens in Paris in 1996. Taking its name from the idea of strolling in a public place, the sculpture evokes the rhythm and movements of walking.
