Gerhard Richter: The Life of Images’ Private Opening at GOMA

‘Gerhard Richter: The Life of Images’ will be the first substantial Australian exhibition of works by the German artist widely recognised as one of the world’s most influential living painters. With works from across six decades of Richter’s painting practice, it will include some of the most compelling and enigmatic pictures of the 20th and 21st centuries and show how the artist established an unparalleled influence on contemporary art. Bringing together works from numerous lenders, both public and private, from locations across the globe, the exhibition is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see these rarely brought together works.

Richter’s great diversity of practice is seen in the contrast between his monumental abstracts and figurative photo-paintings of Romantic landscapes, images from the media and intimate glimpses of his family.

‘Gerhard Richter: The Life of Images’ Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) 14 Oct 2017 – 4 Feb 2018
