Gerhard Richter: Atlas
April 27, 1995 - February 25, 1996
Atlas is an ongoing, encyclopedic work composed of approximately 4,000 photographs, reproductions or cut-out details of photographs and illustrations, grouped together on approximately 600 separate panels. The images closely parallel, year by year, the subjects of Richter's paintings, revealing the orderly but open-ended analysis central to his art.
Major funding for this exhibition has been provided by the Lannan Foundation, with additional generous support from: Lufthansa German Airlines; Doris and Don Fisher; Mimi and Peter Haas; Linda and Harry Macklowe; Ann Tenenbaum and Thomas H. Lee; and the members of the Dia Art Council and Art Circle.
Thanks to Rainald Schumacher for his assistance on the project.
