This event has ended.

This exhibition of new work by Gerhard Richter is a major representation of works made by the artist from 2005 to the present, including an important new cycle of paintings titled "Sindbad," (2008) as well as individual paintings presenting medium to large format abstractions, and a new group of large scale near-monochrome paintings whose underlying chromatic structures are layered by translucent veils of white paint. The exhibition will be the most recent presentation of the artist's work in New York since his solo exhibition at Marian Goodman NY in 2005. During the past two decades Gerhard Richter has made several important cycles of abstract paintings. The current exhibition follows on other recent series of abstract works by Richter, including the Silicate paintings of 2003; the Cage paintings of 2006, conceived as a single coherent group and first displayed in 2007 at the 52nd Venice Biennale curated by Rob Storr; and a recent group of white abstract works exhibited at Galerie Marian Goodman, Paris in 2008.

    "Sindbad" was enjoyable for little bit, but I think there is such a thing as too much work on view-- the 'white' pieces on the small 3rd floor gallery have quite an impact because they are removed from the rest... A show for the diehard Richter lovers only.
