Panorama   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Gerhard Richter at Centre Pompidou June 6th, 2012 - September 24th, 2012
Posted 8/24/12
For anyone reading this who hasn't been in Paris during the month of August it is hard to describe just how dead the city is. In the quarters outside the main tourist areas, cafes and shops are shut, the streets are quiet, the galleries closed. It is almost impossible to see a dentist. I was left with the Gerhard Richter exhibition at the Pompidou. There are worse things in the world certainly; however at the same time it proves difficult to tackle for purposes of review. Produced in... [more]

Gerhard Richter at Tate Modern October 6th, 2011 - January 8th, 2012
Posted 10/16/11
The world is divided into those who think painting is dead, and those who continue to do it anyway. German master painter Gerhard Richter is defiantly in the latter camp, and Tate Modern’s extensive survey of his fifty-year career at the easel shows this in spades. From the range of painterly concerns on show in Panorama, it seems that Richer has never let up. He continues to experiment with the application of paint and to question painterly representation, moving from his distinctive blurred... [more]
Painting's Evolution   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Gerhard Richter at Galerie Marian Goodman - Paris September 23rd, 2011 - November 3rd, 2011
Posted 9/25/11
At Gerhard Richter’s latest Paris exhibition, Painting 2010-2011, an exhibition of arguably the greatest living painter, there are two series of images and one sculpture. Ironically, despite the exhibition title, despite the immense body of work that gives Richter his reputation, only one of the series of images is made from the material of paint. And yet, the others, 6 Standing Glass Panes and Strip (2011), the sculpture and a series of computer printouts, have everything to do with painting.... [more]

Posted 8/27/11
This themed exhibition is dedicated to the artistic transfer of photographically produced images in the medium of printmaking. The beginnings of this trend lie in the 1960s and the era of Pop Art. The silkscreen print was one of the first printmaking media to use photographic templates. This was quickly followed by offset lithographic printing, which saw another 'trivial' print medium being used to create artistic reproductions. Parallel to this, traditional printing processes such as etching,... [more]
Warehouse Capsule   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
George Condo, Robert Gober, Andreas Gursky, Keith Haring, Cady Noland, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman, Rosemarie Trockel at Rubell Family Collection December 1st, 2010 - August 26th, 2011
Posted 1/9/11
The Rubell Family Collection is housed in a modified, clearly marked former Drug Enforcement warehouse that was once a storehouse for confiscated narcotics straight out of . With low slung white couches and a sleek outdoor courtyard that could easily be found on South Beach, it lacks the rough industrial aura of the Margulies Collection, but presents a contemporary array of works with a personalized edge. At a mere 40,000-something square feet, it’s more manageable than its humongous Wynwood... [more]

        William Shearburn Gallery is pleased to announce a group exhibition entitled, Ab/Fig, curated by Wendy Cooper. The exhibition will open with a reception on Friday, November 19, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm and continue through January 15, 2011. As a child, Wendy Cooper accompanied her mother, a medieval art historian through museums to search for hidden clues and to identify the personal styles of artists who for almost a millennium painted nothing but religious iconography....

Introduction to Fisher Collection and the 75th Anniversary Exhibit at SFMOMA Last Saturday, I visited San Francisco Modern Art Museum for the Calder to Warhol: Introducing the Fisher Collection exhibit. There are 160 pieces from the 1,000 plus Fisher Colletions on display. There were many impressive works and the profile and prestige of SFMOMA will increase dramatically once a new wing is build for this incredibly rich modern art collection.Several of my favorite artists are included...

Posted 6/28/10
      Many in the art world are bemoaning the gradual extinction of the museum as a public institution, fearing its replacement by flashy private vanity projects that house even flashier collections funded by a seemingly endless influx of cash. And even those public institutions left standing are swiftly altering their operational models, shifting towards slicker, privatized programming to attract all the foot traffic that money can buy (the recent Dakis exhibition at the New Museum, for...

‘The choreography of mediatised reality’   --Will Self, ‘The Bounds of Inner Space’ Gagosian Gallery Catalogue 2010 We are not living in the real world, but merely exist in a virtual dimension, held like flies in aspic by shifting screens and filters which drip feed sensations of experience: violence, pleasure, the monstrous, the curious. These filters are precisely created episodes of a world theatre, a continuous and totally involving soap opera. ‘CRASH: Homage to... [more]
From Here to Eternity   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Paweł Althamer, Olivier Babin, Johanna Billing, Maurizio Cattelan, Tacita Dean, Pierre Huyghe, William Kentridge, Lars Laumann, Gabriel Orozco, Gerhard Richter, Thomas Struth, Guido van der Werve, Lawrence Weiner, Artur Zmijewski at Marian Goodman Gallery July 1st, 2009 - August 28th, 2009
Posted 7/19/09
Taking its title from a Lawrence Weiner work, comprises works that contemplate impermanence and mortality, often from a personalized, humanist point of view. There is nothing fussy or overly sophisticated about this one. It talks the talk and walks the walk.  The show opens with Maurizio Cattelan's simple photograph of a pen that has just run out of ink, then proceeds to two poetic films  by William Kentridge and Guido Van der Werve, respectively. The latter's Nummer Acht... [more]
Mediated Materials   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Carlson/Lohner, Pia Greschner, Gerhard Richter, Tom Schurr at billirubin gallery February 21st, 2009 - May 23rd, 2009
Posted 3/29/09
The exhibition at Billirubin Gallery, a short walk from Substitut, is in direct counterpoint to Krieg's installation.  Entitled , it is anything but--it's instead a series of overtly mediated works, exploring the quandary of representation and re-representation by degrees.  The show features video works by Lohner/Carlson and Pia Greschner, a couple photographs by Gerhard Richter, and a Polaroid collage by Tom Schurr. Lohner/Carlson's video works, all entitled Raw Material, the... [more]
Gerhard Richter Portraits   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Gerhard Richter at National Portrait Gallery February 26th, 2009 - May 31st, 2009
Posted 2/26/09
‘The most perfect picture' Gerhard Richter, the great and elusive German artist, described his choice in the early ‘60s to use found snapshots as the primary source for his neo-realist paintings. Born in Dresden, East Germany in 1932 Richter began his career as a social realist mural artist under the communist regime, escaping to the West in 1961 just before the Berlin Wall went up. A student at the Düsseldorf Academy under Professor Joseph Beuys, Richter connected with avant garde... [more]

On the Richter Trail   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Gerhard Richter at Museum Morsbroich October 17th, 2008 - January 18th, 2009
Posted 12/17/08
There are very few reasons to get off the Nordrhein-Westfalen train at Leverkusen if you are on your way anywhere between Cologne and Hamm. But the Museum Morsbroich is one very good one. Continuing on the Gerhard Richter trail of 2008 exhibitions (see my review of the exhibition) the Museum housed in the old castle at Morsbroich is showing an extraordinary selection of 500 of Richter’s over-painted photographs executed between 1986 and 2008. While Richter is also under the spotlight in London... [more]
Painting's not Dead   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Gerhard Richter at Museum Ludwig Köln October 18th, 2008 - February 1st, 2009
Posted 11/10/08
This small, very focused exhibition of 40 odd works by Gerhard Richter is the privilege of a museum able to exhibit the local talent. Though Richter was born in East Germany and trained in Dusseldorf, his residential status in Cologne qualifies him as a local artist for the Museum Ludwig. It is rare to see such a small, concentrated collection of works by one of the world’s greatest living artists on display in a major museum. More typical would be to exhibit the modern master on a grand... [more]
