Gerhard Richter: Cage Paintings
Gagosian Gallery, 456 North Camden Drive, Beverly Hills

December 03, 2020 – April 03, 2021

Gerhard Richter’s Cage paintings (2006) will remain at Gagosian Beverly Hills until April 3. They were a cornerstone of the artist’s retrospective, Gerhard Richer: Painting After All, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York last year. In conjunction with this key group of six paintings, a new group of drawings created by Richter on consecutive days during the summer of 2020 is being shown for the first time. The exhibition will travel to Gagosian New York in the spring of 2021.

Gerhard Richter said “I am very happy that finally the Cage paintings will be shown in Los Angeles and in New York in Larry Gagosian’s galleries, after all. And I thought adding eight recent drawings would make sense.”

Larry Gagosian commented, “I am delighted to have the opportunity to show Gerhard Richter’s extraordinary Cage paintings in Los Angeles and New York. Richter, like John Cage himself, has changed the history of art and has had such an enormous influence on subsequent generations of artists. To present this important series alongside new drawings is a great honor for me.”
