On the second segment of this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast, we initiate a series of interviews about Richard Serra’s Shift (1971-72, at left), one of the most important earthworks. Shift is in King City, Ontario, where the province’s failure to grant it landmark status has left the work endangered by encroaching exurban development. (Remarkably, an Ontario preservation board recently ruled that Shift has no heritage value to the community.) Shift is the contemporary masterpiece under the greatest threat.
Our series of segments on Shift kicks off with Richard Serra himself. Serra has spoken sparingly about Shift in recent years, but when he was a guest on Episode No. 18 of The MAN Podcast he talked about it at length, particularly in terms of its close relationship to his concurrent Pulitzer Piece and how the work emerged out of conversations with Joan Jonas and Philip Glass. This week’s show features a re-air of the part of our conversation during which Serra discusses Shift, its history and its future.

On a Sunday stroll on Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn, I stumbled upon a small carpet and kilim shop. Kea is a fabulous little shop that sells rugs from all over the world. Susan, I believe the owner, was educating me on the meaning and back-story of each rug. Kilims hung on the wall like art and She was absolutely lovely. Very cool place!
