Gerhard Richter 'Panorama' at the Centre Pompidou
This touring retrospective of the world’s greatest living painter opens to the public at the Pompidou today, after its inaugural London season at the Tate. Panorama brings together a selection of 150 major works by Gerhard Richter. The artist has been fully involved in the original design conceived specifically for the exhibition which offers a double insight, both chronological and thematic, into his career from the 1960s until his most recent works. “I pursue no objectives, no system, no tendency; I have no programme, no style, no direction. I like the indefinite, the boundless. I like continual uncertainty.” (And from tomorrow the Louvre presents in parallel ‘Gerhard Richter: Drawings & Other Works on Paper, 1957-2008’ in the Mollien rooms of the Prints and Drawings Department.)
Until 24 Sep.
