“You Are The Subject: Richard Serra at Glenstone” Short Film Now Streaming Online

“Four Rounds: Equal Weight, Unequal Measure” 2017 by Richard Serra installed at Glenstone Museum

Montgomery County, Maryland is home to Glenstone, a museum of modern and contemporary art, that is integrated into nearly 300 acres of gently rolling pasture and unspoiled woodland in Potomac, Maryland, less than 15 miles from the heart of Washington, DC.

In July of 2021, a 656,000-pound sculpture made of forged steel crossed state lines and bridges on its way to Glenstone. It traveled slowly, winding its way from New Jersey to Maryland. At dusk, it crossed the Susquehanna River. At midnight, it arrived.

You Are The Subject: Richard Serra at Glenstone, a new short film, tells the multi-year story of the installation and opening of Richard Serra’s Four Rounds: Equal Weight, Unequal Measure, 2017.

Produced with Rava Films, You Are The Subject is now available digitally in collaboration with designboom, following a world premiere at the Montreal International Festival of Films on Art on March 17, 2023.

Whether you have never been to Glenstone or are a frequent visitor, You Are The Subject will give you new insights into Glenstone, their staff, and dedication to the art and artists of the time.
