German painter Daniel Richter shows his abstract works
2 July - 17 September 2017 | Camden Arts Centre, London
Daniel Richter exhibition at Camden Arts Centre
Daniel Richter’s exhibition ‘Lonely Old Slogans’ is on display at Camden Arts Centre from 2 July to 17 September. The German painter shows a broad range of his artworks that reflect current issues in politics, society and media and create images of unstable realities.
Daniel Richter has had a special impact on painting in Germany for more than 20 years. The exhibition shows a retrospect over Richter’s work, from his early expressive abstractions to his more recent figurative stagings, with his latest artworks focusing on the human body. Richter explores the question of how painting can react to today’s political, social and media realities. ‘Lonely Old Slogans’ is a travelling exhibition that has been to Denmark and Austria earlier this year.
Born in 1962 in Eutin, Germany, Richter is based in Berlin, Hamburg and Vienna. He was professor of painting at Universität der Künste Berlin and currently holds a professorship at Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien. His works have been on display at many venues in Germany and worldwide.
