Save event

Join Dr Jody Patterson, Programme Leader for Art and Visual History at Plymouth University as she looks at the life and career of Gerhard Richter, the subject of the museum's ARTIST ROOMS exhibition (26 September 2015 to 16 January 2016).

This exhibition will examine the breadth and depth of the practice of Gerhard Richter, recognised as one of the world’s most significant living artists, through a carefully chosen selection of paintings and prints.

The works that will be on display are taken from ARTIST ROOMS, an inspirational collection of modern and contemporary art acquired for the nation by Tate and The National Galleries of Scotland through the generosity of Anthony D’Offay with additional support from funders, including the Art Fund.


£2 per person. Advance booking and payment are essential through the City Museum and Art Gallery's Welcome Desk. Payment can be made by cash, cheque, debit or credit card. Please make cheques payable to 'Plymouth City Council'. Please note the museum will not be able to refund any monies unless the talk is cancelled.

Any unreserved tickets will be available on the day although the museum cannot guarantee that any will remain! All talks start at 1.10pm and last for up to 45 minutes including questions and answers.

For the enjoyment of all attendees latecomers will not be admitted if the gallery is full or very busy. If you wish to get a particular seat please turn up in plenty of time.
