DOHA: Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar (VCUQatar), in association with the Qatar Museums Authority is presenting a lecture by an American sculptor on April 10 at the Atrium in its campus here.

Richard Serra will lecture on his work in sculpture and drawing, including his large-scale, site-specific sculptures for architectural, urban and landscape settings, which have received critical acclaim globally.

He is exhibiting at two cultural spaces in Doha on QMA's invitation, VCUQatar said.

One at the Al Riwaq Doha Exhibition space where visitors will be able to experience 'Passage of Time' conceived specifically for the space.

The second at the QMA Gallery in Katara Cultural Village is a selection of seven sculptures and four large drawings that reflect the main stages in the development of his work. 

The exhibitions curated by Alfred Pacquement, Honorary Director, National Museum of Modern Art, Centre Pompidou, Paris, run from April 10 to July 6, 2014.

Serra has exhibited his work in many museums such as Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 1977; Centre Pompidou, Paris, 1984; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1986 and again in 2007 and in other Museums in Europe, USA and Latin America.
