A major solo exhibition celebrating the breadth and impact of Gerhard Richter's work.
John Hansard Gallery, part of University of Southampton, opens its new home in the city with this inaugural exhibition of one of the world’s most significant and celebrated contemporary living artists.
Spaces within the new gallery will be devoted to artworks drawn from the ARTIST ROOMS collection, including significant examples selected from Richter’s wide-ranging practice over the past five decades. The exhibition showcases several aspects of Richter’s work, including painting, tapestries, photography and print that demonstrate his immense ongoing influence and significance to generations of artists.
Alongside the exhibition is a programme of workshops, tours and talks that playfully explores Richter’s practice and processes with participants. SÓN, Southampton’s professional orchestra, also presents a series of musical interventions and responses to Richter’s works.
