Gerhard RichterBooks, Catalogues
and the disappearance of the image in contemporary art
catalogue of the exhibition (Florence, Palazzo Strozzi, CCCS-Centro di Cultura Contemporanea Strozzina, 20 February–25 April 2010)
The protagonists of this exhibition are the great German painter Gerhard Richter, born in Dresden in 1932, and reflections on the path he has traced in contemporary art, with particular reference to image processing and its limits or frontiers.
The dissolution of the image, the theme of the twelve paintings by Richter on show, was also the subject of the works and studies by seven other artists: Anthony Gormley, Roger Hiorns, Marc Breslin, Scott Short, Xie Nanxing, Lorenzo Banci and Wolfgang Tillmans use a range of different techniques to express their reflections on the present and future potential of art.
The catalogue includes essays, details and reproductions of the thirty works included in the exhibition.
