Gerhard Richter at Marian Goodman Gallery London
Marian Goodman inaugurated her London gallery with an exhibition of new and recent works by Gerhard Richter. The show features over 40 works, including new paintings of the series Strip, Flow and Doppelgrau. The exhibition is accompanied by a large glass sculpture – 7 Panes of Glass (House of Cards) – and a selection of earlier pieces. The exhibition will remain on view until 20 December 2014.
Gerhard Richter has recently been the subject of substantial solo exhibitions at the Fondation Beyeler, Basel; The Kunstmuseum Winterthur; and the Staatliche Kunstsammlung, Dresden. The artist’s work was last seen in London in Gerhard Richter: Panorama, a comprehensive retrospective at Tate Modern in 2011, which travelled to the Neue and Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin, and The Centre Pompidou, Paris.
The new Marian Goodman Gallery London is housed in a former Victorian factory warehouse in Lower John Street, measuring 11,000 square feet over two floors, which has been completely renovated with the help of David Adjaye.
