Born in San Francisco in 1939, Serra earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of California in Santa Barbara, then a Master of Fine Art's degree from Yale University in 1964. He spent the following two years studying in Paris and Italy before settling in New York in 1966. In 1967 and 1968 the artist developed a list of infinitives, such as “to scatter,” “to roll,” “to prop,” “to cut,” and “to bend,” which describe many of the processes the artist would employ throughout his career, either using his own hands or industrial methods of fabrication. Early on, Serra made works that assigned primary significance to process. Exploiting unusual materials such as rubber, which he hung in strips on gallery walls, and molten lead, which he famously hurled into the angle between wall and floor, Serra placed particular emphasis on the process by which materials themselves are formed, as well as the way they react to external conditions such as gravity or temperature.
