Gerhard Richter: Pictures / Series
BASEL, SWITZERLAND  •  Fondation Beyeler  •  18 May - 7 September 2014

"I do not obey any intention, system or trend; I have no programme, style or pretention. I love uncertainty, infinity and permanent insecurity."

The exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler centers on German artist Gerhard Richter's (born in Dresden in 1932, now based in Cologne) series, cycles, and interior spaces. A counterpoint to these is formed by a number of single works, many of which have achieved iconic status. Some hundred pictures are on show — portraits, still-lifes, landscapes, abstract images — along with two glass objects and sixty-four overpainted photographs. The selection encompasses the major periods in Richter’s career since 1966, including recent works not yet seen in public.
