Brouq Nature Reserve, Qatar (2014) – Qatar Museums recently unveiled East-West/West-East, a new sculpture by American artist Richard Serra. Comprised of four standing steel plates, East-West/West-East spans a length of 0.6 miles across the Brouq Nature Reserve, connecting the waters of the Gulf in western Qatar. The plates, which rise 48.2 feet and 54.8 feet above the ground, are level to each other and to the gypsum plateaus on either side. The unveiling of East-West/West-East, Serra’s second public art commission in the Middle East, coincides with the artist’s solo show at Al RIWAQ DOHA Exhibition Space and QMA Gallery at Katara.
