Exhibitions

The bilingual exhibition catalogue Gerhard Richter e la dissolvenza dell'imagine nell'arte contemporanea/Gerhard Richter and the Disappearance of the Image in Contemporary Art was published in 2010 on the occasion of the exhibition at Palazzo Strozzi in Florence. Gerhard Richter’s oeuvre is reviewed under the aspect of gradual disappearance, and dissolving concrete contents. The process of disappearance can be traced back to Richter’s early work of blurred photo-paintings, then to his abstract over-paintings of figurative images and to his abstract paintings.

Gerhard Richter’s paintings are juxtaposed with works by seven other artists, including Lorenzo Banci, Antony Gormley, Xie Nanxing and Wolfgang Tillmans amongst others.

Contributions by James Bradburne, Franziska Nori, Wolfgang Ullrich and Benjamin H. D. Buchloh.
