David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new and recent work by renowned German artist Gerhard Richter at the gallery’s 24 Grafton Street location in London. This marks the gallery’s first presentation of Richter’s work in London since announcing his representation in December 2022, and follows the artist’s recent debut at David Zwirner in New York in spring of 2023. 

This considered installation expands upon Richter’s sustained inquiry into the fixity of perception and reaffirms his unwavering commitment to the formal and conceptual possibilities of abstraction. Centrally featured are three of the artist’s celebrated abstract paintings, made in the years preceding his decision to move away from oil paint and turn toward drawing and installation with increasing dedication. An expansive group of new works on paper—some made with ink or pencil, others with a combination of the two—illuminates the newfound urgency and prominence that Richter has placed on method and technique in drawing
