Gerhard Richter – Survey

Gerhard Richter is one of the world’s most influential contemporary painters. Survey is an exhibition of twenty-seven exemplary works selected by Richter himself and is the first exhibition of this breadth to be viewed in Australia.


Survey gives insight into all the phases of Richter’s creative work from photopainting in the 1960s to abstract painting in the 1980s and 1990s.  Richter’s work challenges the art of painting. Through his ingenious use of painting’s modern counterpart, photography, Richter has deconstructed the formal conventions of painting and demonstrated its renewed vitality.
