    Curated by Nicholas Serota and Mark Godfrey

    A decade after MoMA’s much-contested but hugely popular Gerhard Richter retrospective, Tate Modern curators Nicholas Serota and Mark Godfrey, in a departure from the 2001 exhibition’s painting-only approach, will survey the German artist’s career by looking chronologically and comprehensively across a half century of practice. Including, in addition to paintings, a selection of drawings and photographs, as well as the largest assortment of Richter’s glass works ever assembled, the show will also be the first outside Germany to present the monumental Stroke, his sixty-five-foot-long painting of a single gestural mark completed for a German school in 1980. Organized with an eye to the distinct historical contexts and diversity of aesthetic modes in which Richter has worked, “Panorama” promises a new look at the artist just in time for his eightieth birthday in February.
