John Hansard Gallery’s new building opens with a major exhibition by Gerhard Richter.
The gallery in Southampton is celebrating the opening of its new expanded and purpose-built gallery with this inaugural exhibition. All spaces within the new gallery are devoted to Gerhard Richter’s works drawn from the ARTIST ROOMS collection, and several aspects of his practice is represented, including painting, photography, and print. Richter (born 1932) is one of the most significant artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. The exhibition is a serious examination of the artist’s work, bringing it to new audiences and demonstrating his immense ongoing influence and significance to subsequent generations of artists.
