One of a “chain” of twelve worldwide galleries, the underrated Britannia Street Gagosian is all hard lines and white light.
And, after a visit last Friday lunchtime, we highly recommend the atmospheric new show by New York-based Richard Serra, which displays four awe-inspiring steel sculptures. Most powerful is the eerie Backdoor Pipeline (pictured), fun – not to mention a little unsettling – to scuttle through.
Born in San Francisco in 1938, Serra studied both at the University of California and Yale, and has lived in the Big Apple for nearly half a century.
His work has been shown in numerous solo museum exhibitions from Amsterdam to Centre Pompidou, Paris and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. In 2005, eight large-scale works were permanently installed at Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
So don’t miss him right here in King’s Cross. Until Feb 28 2015. Opening hours Tue–Sat 10-6pm.
