This event has ended.

David Zwirner presents an exhibition of new and recent work by Gerhard Richter.

The exhibition presents a group of Richter’s last paintings, made in 2016–2017; a number of these abstract oil paintings will be shown here for the first time. Though Richter completed his last paintings in 2017, his dynamic practice continues his artistic inquiries into the possibilities of abstraction and perception through his ongoing experimentation with drawing, printing and sculpture.

Richter has produced a new glass installation that continues his exploration of the human perspective and the built environment. An expansive suite of new works on paper from 2021–2022—some made with ink and others with graphite and colored pencil—are also on view, as well as works related to the artist’s mood series of colored ink sketches. As Dieter Schwarz notes, Richter’s new work “has transformed into the celebration of the visible and this celebration is driving new chapters in [his] indefatigable creativity.”
