Gerhard Richter Exhibition, Tate Modern, London

his will be the first major retrospective of the work of Gerhard Richter (b. 1932) in London for over twenty years. The exhibition will be a chronological display grouping works into important phases of Richter's career. 

It will include his photo-paintings (1962–7), early experiments with landscapes and cityscapes (1967–9), October 18 1977 (1988), a sequence of paintings based on images of the Baader-Meinhof group, and his squeegee paintings of the 1990s. The show will be punctuated by three glass constructions made in 1967, 1976 and 2002, and a room will be devoted to photographs, editions, prints, over-painted photographs and book spreads, showing the full variety of media in which Richter has worked. The exhibition will end with a room bringing together his most recent paintings, including September 2005, based on an image of the 9/11 attack.
