Gerhard Richter: Painting After All

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) presents Gerhard Richter: Painting After All at its Grand Avenue location, opening August 15, 2020. The first ever survey of Richter’s work to appear in Los Angeles, and the first major exhibition in the United States in nearly twenty years, the exhibition will span the artist’s six decade-long exploration of the material, conceptual, and historical implications of painting through the dual means of representation and abstraction.

Special exhibitions are free every Thursday from 5pm to 8pm and MOCA members always receive free admission to special exhibitions. Tickets go on sale at on July 14, 2020.
