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.
